5. Chelsea and Grand Central Terminal Apple Stores
Apple Stores are as much about the gleaming technological devices as the architecture that surrounds the products. Many critics and consumers have praised Apple for the conversion of the building on 401 West 14th street in the Meatpacking District and the opening of a store in the main concourse of the landmarked Grand Central Terminal. So far, Apple has managed to retain and revitalize historical architecture contextually, while maintaining brand identity.
