Snowblower Cracks Glass at Apple Store: $450K Fix The company cube in Manhattan gets roughed up By John Johnson, Newser Staff Posted Jan 23, 2014 3:59 PM CST 29 comments Comments File photo of the Apple Store on 5th Avenue. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II) (Newser) – Try explaining this one to the boss: A snowblower banged into and shattered one of the 32-foot glass panels that form a cube outside the Apple Store in Manhattan, and 9to5Mac estimates the cost of replacement at $450,000. (That's based on the $6.7 million cost to install 15 of the panels a few years back.) The accident occurred Tuesday, though Apple isn't offering more details about what happened. In the meantime, the store remains open. BuzzFeed rounds up some images.
