Apple Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Fifth Avenue in New York City is the most iconic Apple store location.

Clearly, the world’s most famous Apple store location is the Apple Fifth Avenue store. A few years ago, I was on a double-decker bus tour of New York City. First, we drove past where John Lennon was shot. And about 10% of those on the bus stood up to take a photo. Yet, when we drove past the Apple Fifth Avenue store location, the entire bus stood up to take a picture. 

Constructed in 2006, the Fifth Avenue store is one of the first over-the-top Apple store locations. Importantly, they designed the cube to entice people to enter the store, creating a grand entrance. Indeed, it is now a tourist attraction. Unquestionably, the cube has become the photo every visitor wants. If you are visiting NYC, it’s a must-see for any trip.

This Apple store location is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
