New York City nightlife will never be the same now that Apples new midtown store, which opens today, will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. The store, which has gotten a lot of buzz for its five-story, glass encased, Jobs-designed, cube-shaped entryway, will feature 4,000 square feet of retail space, most of it underground, and will be able to satisfy those musical and computing urges, day or night. Word is that the store will also be giving away one MacBook an hour to lucky visitors over the next couple of days (starting with today’s 6pm opening), so we expect some pretty sizable crowds to show up. If they add a bar and an iPod DJ system we’ll be sure to stop going to other spots and make the Apple store the place to be!
