“Building permits were issued earlier this month for certain demolition work in the basement of the store at 103 Prince Street, and core samples are being drilled out of the ground in front of the store,” ifoAppleStore reports. “But that work may only be preparatory, the source says.”

ifoAppleStore reports, “Now Apple’s name has appeared on the lease for 124 Greene Street, the space on the side street behind the SoHo store, which the U.S. Postal Service occupied after giving up the main building to Apple in 2001.
