Grand Central’s Apple Store – The Biggest in North America?

Really impressed with the pics I got from a recent walk thru of the Apple Store in Grand Central Terminal this week. The Grand Central Apple store opened back in 2011. I have been here before but never realized how LARGE it is! I’ve read it’s the third biggest Apple Store. Apple employees state it’s the biggest in North America. At around 23,000 feet it’s pretty impressive!
