Big Apple’s Biggest Apple Store Opens Tonight

Tonight New York’s Meatpacking District gets a produce section of sorts. Opening its doors at the stroke of 6pm (in a former Western Beef supermarket, no less) is Manhattan’s third and largest Apple Store, featuring three floors of Applicious fun. The top floor serves up expert advice at a 46-foot “Genius Bar” and will host free training sessions on photo, video, and music applications. Take the spiral staircase down one floor and find iPods and iPhones. The first floor is Mac Central (look here for free Wi-Fi), where even the most stalwart PC user is apt to wistfully fondle the wares.

Be sure to get there early for your chance at a commemorative t-shirt and other Apple gifts, which we’ll give until 9pm to start showing up on eBay. As for those t-shirts, we hear that Apple is taking a page from the early playbook of Henry Ford–you can have one in any color you want, as long as it’s black.
