June 6, 2017 - On our first day in New York we start with breakfast in a local deli then took a walk to the Central Park 5th Avenue Apple Store, you know the one whose entrance is a massive glass cube.
Well, someone has nicked it... The store is being refurbished and so once again I have missed seeing this iconic store (last year, I walked down the wrong side of Central Park). Anyway, in we pop to the temporary location adjacent to the site to see if by chance they had some Air Pods in stock. Surprise, surprise, no they don't have any in stock so chose to buy my lovely wife, Jane, an Apple Watch. Whilst Jane was having her new toy fitted I had a look around the store, hoping to see the new Macs announced the day before, no luck there either... Was sorely tempted to buy a drone but once again chickened out.
After that bit of retail therapy off we trot down 5th Avenue to say hello to Donald at Trump Tower, he wasn't in he tweeted, so on to more interesting vistas including Rockefeller Plaza before cutting across to Time Square, more about that and our first adventure on the Subway in my next post.
