Quite different from the enormous glass cube on 5th Avenue, the location in SoHo is installed in a post office building with preserved architecture, next to such brands as Polo Ralph Lauren and J.Crew. Dominique Ansel Bakery, where you’ll find the famous Cronut (a combination croissant and doughnut), is just four blocks away.
One of the most elegant thoroughfares in Barcelona, Passeig de Gràcia starts at the busy Plaça de Catalunya. The department store El Corte Inglés is located right across from the Apple Store, which is installed in a lovely corner building.
Bologna, a charming city in northern Italy, is a 1-hour ride on the fast train from Milan. The Apple Store is a few blocks away from Via Zamboni, which takes you to Università di Bologna. On the way there, you’ll find Piazza Giuseppe Verdi, Teatro Comunale, and several pleasant narrow streets to explore.
Santa Monica is so close to downtown Los Angeles that it’s almost a neighborhood of the city. The Apple Store is located a few blocks from the lively pier, which usually has live music and is a great place to watch the sunset.
