On November 4th, the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in New York reopened its redesigned Cube entrance.From many glass windows to just a few the new Cube is sleek, clear and pretty impressive. You can see right into the store or right through it if you prefer to keep your eyes on the city.

Many Apple fans came by the store to check it out and it was pretty crazy over there all day. But then again it is usually pretty crazy over there so maybe it was just the regulars.

If you didn’t make it over there, don’t worry, we did.

The new cube! Now walls consist of only three large pieces of glass as opposed to many small ones.

The old cube.

The new design makes it a little easier to see that big Apple logo in the middle.

And sets it up for a nice reflection.

From the side you can really appreciate the use of the new bigger windows.

And from behind.

Many snapping photos.

Of course, there are tons of people here to check it out.

Apple Geniuses were on hand to guide visitors.

You can look into the store, or through it at the city if you want.

This guy was shouting at a friend in the store.

And these people were looking in at the shopping madness.

As always a huge line and a busy store.

This was one of the only times Apple has allowed and encouraged photo taking inside the store.

You can take the stairs or a circular elevator to get down.

Don't worry, the stairs are made of glass but you can't see through them.

The circular elevator in the middle is really cool.

And the view is awesome.

You can also see how the glass windows connect.

One last look at the big Apple from inside the store and we are off.

See the Apple Store in a more somber setting.
