Gothamist gets a sneak peek into the Apple store opening on Saturday at 67th Street and Broadway, and it's just as glassy and curvy as it was in our glassiest, curviest dreams. Curbed thinks it might even be better than the Fifth Avenue cube, and it's certainly bigger: You could fit eleven cubes in the ground floor, if you were a giant who enjoyed rearranging Apple stores. With 220 employees, the shop can handle 100 customers at a time, and every single person who works there will be able to check people out with an iPod touch. Also, per Gothamist, the "light changes as sun moves and with seasons, creating unique experiences." Mystical! Now, if you'll excuse us, we have to print out the photo above and paste it into our locker.
