Steve Jobs’ death on Wednesday was a shock to the world and to his many fans and supporters.Though aware of his illness, few people were aware of its progression and many were taken by surprise when he died.

Yesterday, at the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue people set up a memorial to Steve and many came to pay their respects to the innovative technology developer and one of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs and business leaders.

You can go to the memorial at the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue (near 59th St. and Columbus Circle) and pay your respects to Steve. And in case you don’t have time for that, we went to get some photos of it for you.

Walk down Fifth Avenue from 59th Street and look for the crowd around the Apple Store.

Get through and you will see the mementos people have been leaving in honour of Steve Jobs.

There a lot of apples with bites in them.

We even saw one person set up their piece of the growing memorial.

He took a bite of his apple and put it down.

There were a number of thank yous to Steve among the offerings.

And messages scrawled into apples.

One of Steve Jobs' most popular quotes.

Parents came with their children to pay their respects.

And many who came were overcome with emotion.

The news media (besides us) also showed up.

And lots of photographers.

Many of them using products created by Steve Jobs, like the iPhone.

And the iPad.

The allure of the iPhone 4S was also drawing people to the store.

A final message to Steve Jobs.

Their founder may be gone, but the Apple Store continues full operation.
