The illuminated glass cube that dramatically marks the flagship Apple store on Fifth Avenue near Central Park cracked yesterday when a snowblower bumped into a 32-foot-tall pane, Buzzfeed reports. Thanks, De Blasio.
Open 24/7, the store does not plan to close for repairs. (A 2011 renovation of the structure reportedly cost around $6.7 million.)
On the bright side, for a small window of time, the tourist photos taken out front will be slightly more interesting.
Sooo.. a snowblower smashed into the Apple Store today. Lol. pic.twitter.com/z5BCXf0DYh— Christina (@christinagignac) January 22, 2014
