Why Does Apple Hate BK?

Speaking of laptops, it's official. Apple has dissed Brooklyn. Despite the fact that Park Slope alone must account for the highest per capita Apple product ownership in the fucking world, Apple won't build a gorgeous glass-enclosed shrine anywhere in our borough. 

We're not gentrified enough.

Despite the entreaties of Marty Markowitz (or maybe because of them?), Apple's not biting. 

As a Marty insider told me last week, while ignoring my request for a list of top international freebie junkets staffers were pissed not to have gone on, "BK's mom and pop strips don't appeal to them." And Fulton Mall is still a little too ghetto. Actually, what said staffer said was worse but not for attribution.

I personally am pissed. Staten Island gets an Apple Store but we don't?

All we get is that crap ass Mac Support Store?

Why not give them Modells/PC Richard by the Atlantic Center Mall by eminent domain? That site cries out for a fancy glass building!

What do you think?
