Apple Mulling Grand Central Store, Again


The MTA is attempting to woo Apple back to Grand Central Station after rumors that the retailer expressed interest, then disinterest, in putting a store there, the Wall Street Journal is reporting. Apparently restauranteur Charlie Palmer is closing his restaurant Métrazur July 1, and the MTA feels pressure to pull in a big-name retailer. News of the negotiations has leaked slowly as the famously tight-lipped company has a near-lock on real estate news sources in the city. Fun fact: Grand Central Station is one of just four New York landmarks that are photographed more than “the cube,” Apple’s store on Fifth Ave.
