Here are some photos I took at Friday night’s Grand Opening of the Apple Store Fifth Avenue in New York City.

A couple of shots of the glass cube entrance to the underground store…

One of the friends Katie made while in the queue to get into the store uses a new black MacBook while waiting outside…

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (with “friend” Robert Smigel) makes fun of the Apple geeks in front of the entrance to the store. To get into a Triumph mindset for a moment, I will say that I love Mac OS X Tiger, but Windows XP is also a good operating system…FOR ME TO POOP ON!

Katie reacts to news from an Apple Store staffer that the free T-shirts being given out to the first 2,500 people in the store should still be around by the time we got inside.

A shot of the sprial, glass staircase and the Jetsons-like elevator in the middle of it…

Looking up through the cube from the sales floor of the Apple Store to the General Motors Building above…

Some pics of the Apple Store itself…


Film director/writer/producer/actor Spike Lee does some shopping…

Actor James Woods, who starred in one of my all-time favorite movies, “True Believer,” talks to Spike Lee on the staircase…

Katie tells a guy with a camera about how she nearly elbowed James Woods in the head while walking down the staircase into the store…

John Legend, winner of this year’s Grammy Award for Best New Artist and University of Pennsylvania alumnus, picks up some Apple gear…

NOTE: Not pictured are SNL cast member Finesse Mitchell and hip hop/rap/R&B superstar Kanye West. Katie actually bumped into Finesse and told him she thinks he’s funny. Meanwhile, Kanye descended down the glass staircase escorted by about a dozen Apple employees after I had put my camera away. By the time I turned my camera back on, Kanye was mobbed by gawkers and whisked away to what I assume is a VIP room (since I also saw Spike Lee go in there at one point).

Two shots of the Apple Store entrance at night…

My Apple Store T-shirt…

And here is a pic of Katie and me with the fellow Macheads she made friends with while waiting for NJ Transit to finally get me to NYC…
