The store was really crowded. I picked up what I needed and proceeded to the checkout lines. THERE WAS 5 LINES WITH APPROXIMATELY 15-20 PEOPLE ON EACH LINE!!!
After waiting 30 minutes I finally got checked out.
There was actually a line to go up the spiral staircase and get out of the store. It only took a minute, but wow what a crowd. There must have been a few hundred people in the store easily.
When I left the store the line to get in was longer then when I came.
Yes I realize this is their flagship store and this is NY, but I've been to this store several times and NEVER seen it this crowded.
BOTTOM LINE: If your planning a visit to the Genius Bar or to buy something allow plenty of time!!
