Sharp editorial in today's New York Times on Apple's excessively-secretive ways when it comes to opening a new store smack in the middle of one of the greatest landmarks in the city:
New Yorkers are protective of Grand Central Terminal, that Beaux-Arts masterpiece built in 1913 and restored in 1998. So, when word seeped out that Apple planned a store in the balconies of the great hall, there was bound to be a lot of curiosity. We certainly were curious. What did Apple have in mind? A large glass apple rivaling the great clock?
Reasonable questions. And Apple must have drawings, right? Not so fast.
