Apple’s Fifth Avenue Store Glass Panel Shattered By Snowblower

Apple’s Fifth Avenue Store Glass Panel Shattered By Snowblower

If you haven’t seen the Apple Store on 5th Avenue then you really missed out on something. The iconic cube first revealed in 2006, went through a major renovation project in 2011 bringing the total of glass panels from 90 to a mere 15.

Now however a snowblower accidentally knocked into one of the panels shattering it. An employee at the store reported that the glass panel is situated in the southeast corner of the building.

As you can see in the image the glass remains stable but has shattered all over. 

When the renovation took place in 2011 the approximate cost was $6.7 million, doing some quick math that brings the the total cost of replacing the glass panels to somewhere around $450,000 a rather hefty cost for a snowblower accident.

According to reports Apple has no intention of closing the store to exchange the broken glass.
