Apple has backed out of a logistically complicated plan to open a store in Grand Central Terminal, reports the New York Observer. The paper broke the news Friday night after following up on a Tweet from Newmark Knight Frank broker Jeffrey Roseman, who wrote "Let's see if Apple NOT coming to Grand Central gets as much press as it got when the rumor started." The Observer first noted Apple's interest in the space a little over a month ago; Cult of Mac confirmed the story in mid-February, though it was never fully clear where Apple would find 16,000 square feet of retail space inside Grand Central.
