Apple’s Brooklyn retail store location uncovered?

“Apple’s search for the perfect Brooklyn (NYC) store location now includes 345 Adams Street, a city-owned property that was just purchased by Muss Development as part of a future corridor of upscale shops and restaurants,” ifoAppleStore reports.

“Real estate sources say Apple is among several retailers interested in some part of 40,000 square-feet of space that Muss will convert from office to retail occupancy in the former court building,” ifoAppleStore reports.

MacDailyNews Note: Back in October, The New York Post’s Lois Weiss reported that Apple’s real estate reps were spotted in Brooklyn looking for space in the Williamsburg section development along Kent Avenue between 5th and 7th Streets, in a development called “The Edge.” More here.

  1. There is a large unused retail space at One Times Square (where the ball drops this Monday night) in Manhattan. If any place would be appropriate for a superstore, that is it. Some 6 years ago, it used to be Warner Brothers store. There are three levels and if there is any place on this planet that gets more foot traffic than this, I would like to see it. More than half of city’s subway lines intersect below that building. I wonder what’s the rent and has Apple ever considered it…

  2. Forget Times Square. It’s full of tourists and other undesirables. No one visiting such a store would actually buy & lug home a Mac. Put the store in a neighborhood where real people work & live.

  3. Apple could have been way ahead of the curve and spotted a place in Red Hook.

    With Fairway already well established and [url=”http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/IkeaNearYouView?storeId=12&catalogId=11001&langId;=-1&StoreName=brooklyn
    “]IKEA[/url] on the cusp of opening their doors, the amount of traffic (ugh for us who live/work there) will outnumber any other location in Brooklyn. Besides, where else can you get your Apple pieces and pick up a key lime pie in the process.

  4. There is already a Mac authorised repair/reseller in Brooklyn [the first I admit] on 7th street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Not exactly a cutesy neighbourhood. However, it’s arrived and that’s good enough for me.

    As far as the location of an Apple Store in Brooklyn goes the money in this borough is definitely NOT in Williamsburg, it’s in Park Slope or Brooklyn Heights/Cobble Hill. All the writers in the city are moving to or are already in Park Slope fer chrissakes.
