Apple's first retail store in Queens will mark its eighth location in New York City, with six existing locations in Manhattan and one in Staten Island. Apple is also planning to open its first retail store in Brooklyn, having signed a long-term lease for a 20,000 square-foot building at 247 Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, although those plans are running behind schedule after the store missed its original April 2015 grand opening target.

Apple recently opened its new Upper East Side store in Manhattan at 940 Madison Avenue, on the corner of 74th Street, on the site of a former banking complex built in 1921 that previously housed luxury retailer VBH. The company also plans to renovate its iconic Fifth Avenue store and temporarily relocate to the vacating FAO Schwarz toy store in the same General Motors Building plaza.

I actually knew that (my kids live there). I'm just venting, cause if you live where Tim Cook grew up, you have to drive 2 hours to NEW ORLEANS to get to the nearest Apple store. That's two states away.

You could go to the single Apple store in the state, but that's over 4 hours away.

Maybe Apple retail team did thorough analysis and decided Alabama is not ready yet? Retail is a complex business, they can't just open a store simply because a CEO grew up in that area, wouldn't be fair to shareholders.

Ok, Mr. Cook. Enough is enough. That makes how many Apple stores in the 5 boroughs alone? And there is a single Apple store in your home state of Alabama? <sigh>

Manhattan: 6
Queens: 1 (As of July 11)
Brooklyn: 1 (Under Construction)
Staten Island: 1
The Bronx: 0

What about Long Island? Huntington or Smithtown?

There's Manhasset, Roosevelt Field, Smith Haven Mall, and Walt Whitman Mall.
