The store opened at 10am Eastern time as a large crowd of New Yorkers came to do some holiday shopping. The store, which is located by the East Balcony, was the scene of what one worker in the building called "Chaos". Unlike the 24 hour Apple Store on 5th Avenue, this location closes 9pm weeknights, 7pm on Saturday and 6pm on Sunday. With the large crowd at the Grand Opening and the rush of holiday shopping, those working at the new Apple Store certainly will need their rest.
