“This week, Apple began construction to replace the iconic 32-foot glass cube at its heavily trafficked retail store on Fifth Avenue,” AppleInsider reports. The site offers a first look at the work in progress.
“Those who pass the storefront will encounter a temporary wall of grey plywood fronting the street,” AppleInsider reports. “A small gap between the walls serves as a pathway for customers to still access the staircase that leads to the store below.”
