New York's MTA Releases Grand Central Terminal Apple Store Renderings

TheRealDeal reports that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority has "quietly" released higher quality renderings of what Apple's Grand Central Terminal is expected to look like.



Lower quality versions of these images had been previously posted to the Wall Street Journal. The New York Times, however, commented about how tight lipped everyone involved had been about them.
After some effort, we found someone who let us see the renderings, as long as we didn’t say who it was, and didn’t share them with you.
It seems now that construction is underway, the MTA has determined that it can release these photos to the public.

It actually highlights the beauty of the terminal. What a breath of fresh air. This will be extremely popular with New Yorkers.

[LIST]
[*]45 stoned blue-shirted "hipsters" aimlessly wandering the store - or clumped into tight groups of 3, discussing the band they saw last night.

[*]4 lightly-stoned blue-shirts trying to upsell AppleCare and one-on-one.

[*]2 "managers" in black shirts backed against a wall, deep in conversation.

[*]128 people waiting for a "genius" to run the same damn diagnostic they ran at home, condescendingly confirm that their 6-week-old laptop is DOA, and take their MBP into the depths of Apple repair hell.

[*]7 geriatric grandparents learning how to use a mouse or check their email for photos of their grandchildren at the one-on-one station.

[*]238 tourists motionless in the optimum-in-the-way spot, staring slack-jawed at the ceiling of GCT.

[*]4 homeless men squatting in corners - perhaps pooping.

[*]And, as mentioned previously, hordes of the underemployed checking facebook and staring at themselves in the facetime cameras.

[*]And 1 man with a goat (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/07/26/you-can-bring-a-goat-to-the-apple-store/).

They forgot to add in people checking their Facebook status, playing with their dogs, and playing with photo booth like it is magic.

This is awesome. I was excited when I heard the possibilities of a Grand Central store before, glad it's finally happening. I'm in New York again next week, can't wait to go there again.

I really like the look of it, much better than I expected. And it should hush the naysayers.

Gorgeous looking indeed!

And it most certainly does highlight the beauty of GCT, love it! I'm really looking forward to checking out this Apple store when it opens this November.
