Amid the 5,000-plus words that New York magazine wrote on architect Santiago Calatrava and his controversial World Trade Center Transportation Hub project—the one that's been referred to as a "glorious boondoggle"—there's one sentence that stood out to us in particular:
"A floor below, the walkway where we were standing will one day be ringed with shops — Calatrava pointed out a space he said was reserved for an enormous Apple Store — and passages offering access to 11 subway lines."
So there you have it—an Apple store is headed to the Financial District. The location has been rumored for at least a year now, but the notoriously secret brand hadn't (and still officially hasn't) confirmed it. Other New York City locations in the works for Apple, which is making a hard push on its watch right now, include Williamsburg, Elmhurst, and the Upper East Side.
