Apple already has a notable and iconic presence in New York City, but there has been plenty of rumors lately that the company would expand its retail output in the city. That has been confirmed today as Cupertino confessed it would be opening a new store in the Williamsburg neighbourhood in the borough of Brooklyn.Brooklyn is a bit of a hipster location at the moment with a young population moving to the area and Apple's new store will be located on Bedford Avenue where the company has signed off on a long term lease. The store will be located near the Bedford Avenue L Station, so there will be plenty of footfall in the store, which is never really a problem for Apple anyway. The location is a 20,000 square-foot two story space that is now being put through an extensive remodel to fit into the ultra-modern and cool look of Apple's retail locations. The company is going to have to shift a fair amount of iPhones and other products to pay the monthly lease that is thought to be several million dollars per month.
