Midnight in the City that Never Sleeps

Or more accurately, midnight at the 24 Hour Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in the City that Never Sleeps, a.k.a. New York City, where I spent the weekend.

I saw photos of a glorious glass cube online, but it was all boarded up when I got there. The actual store is deep underground, and a team of security guards pointed the way as we descended flights and flights of industrial staircases, since whatever usual glamorous entryway through the glass cube was under construction.

At 11:30pm, it was about as busy as an Apple store usually is. And boy was I happy that they were open, because somebody was using her lovely new luggage with a different compartment arrangement and thought that she’d left her iPhone recharger cable at home. Well, now I have two.
