It's been two months since the Victoria's Secret at 67th and Broadway closed to make way for the Upper West Side's first Apple Store, and in that time, the building has been swept free of tawdry lingerie and pj's with the word "Pink" scrawled across the bum. Now, the storefront sits empty, silently awaiting its techy fate. It's hard to picture MacBooks and iPhones taking up residence here, though: the whole thing kind of screams "wedding reception." And where's the glass staircase going to go? Only time will tell, friends.
