Our sources are telling us that Apple has purchased the building that currently houses the Salvation Army located at 176 Bedford Avenue (on the corner of Bedford and North 7th) in Williamsburg. Rumors have been floating around for a year as to where the company may set up shop in Brooklyn (with most guessing it would be Downtown), and more recently it’s been rumored that it would be in the new Edge complex. In the past there have been mumblings that the Salvation Army building would become a McDonald’s…so if this goes through, consider it a good thing, Williamsburg.
Discussion over at our local internet bathroom wall Williamsboard seems to think this is either A. no big deal, or B. doubtful. One user says, “Yeah, I don’t buy this. I mean, apple stores aren’t just ANY store, they make every opening seem like a big deal and there aren’t enough people in n. brooklyn who would actually buy anything there to justify a new one.” They then start to talk about how nobody cares, then one user wonders if they live in the same bedroom as another, then my head started to spin until jennytull posted, “theres some multi level shit goin on in this here thread.”, reminding me that this is why I don’t frequent Williamsboard in the first place.
So what’s the deal, Steve? Are you bringing your iEverything into my neighborhood? I bet you are, you sneaky devil. Somebody, talk to me.
