Get ready for another round of Apple Williamsburg rumors! This time, the suspected location isn't a condo building but an old, musty relic of the Williamsburg that used to be: The Salvation Army on Bedford Avenue. Gothamist is reporting that Apple purchased 176 Bedford, the building that houses the Salvo. Of course, even if it's true, that doesn't mean Williamsburgers will be able to roll out of bed at noon and pick up a Nano on the way to brunch anytime soon—Apple has a tendency to sniff out locations for a while before fully committing.
