Apple Hoping To Build Retail Shop In NYC's Grand Central Terminal

One has to wonder if Apple can keep this up.

They've been knocking it out of the park for years now, with quarter after quarter of record growth. At this point, it's doubtful that any other technology company is capable of stopping them. Their stock price is way up, sales are way up, and market share is way up. And when things are going so well, it's easy to justify massive new stores in massive places, to get products and services in front of even more people. That's why Apple's currently awaiting approval from the M.T.A. to build their biggest U.S. store yet in New York's Grand Central Terminal. Hordes of commuters and tourists float through this landmark location, and pending approval, Apple will build a retail shop here to take the place of an outgoing eatery.

Aside from an up front payment of millions, Apple's rent will be around $1.1m per year, giving them 23,000 square feet to hawk Apple gear. Is an Apple Store in Grand Central a nightmare waiting to happen for avid travelers? Or just another must-see tourist spot? And if they can get a store here... where else is one coming?

Hopefully they don't tarnish the look and feel of this beautiful train station. Though I am sure this location would make some great profits with the amount of people going through there everyday.

"I would imagine if they can get one in Central Station, imagine them getting on in front or around the World Trade Center Site, I'm sure a lot of people would rather have an Apple Store instead of that Mosque. Now, I'm just starting debate, I don't have anything against any religion.'

They should make a pitch to NASA right away to get premium retail space on the International Space Station so that when it does open up to public in say 50 years, tourists will get to see Apple Space as they get off the shuttle. NASA could really get ahead in R&D if they charged Apple a few millions per year starting now up until this can become reality. Win/Win for both.

I'll rent the back of my truck out to them,......We could call it the "Far From The Tree" Apple Store.

ISS is going to be pitched out of orbit and into the ocean in the year 2020.
