The new Apple store at North and Halsted will open this coming Saturday at 10 am. The CTA leased the former bus turnaround at the North/Clybourn Red Line station at no cost to Apple. In exchange, Apple agreed to spend about $4 million to rehab the interior and exterior of the station, and fund improvements at the platform level.
Kevin Zolkewicz recently posted Flickr photos of final preparations to the station and the store for the opening:
To mark the opening, I’m sharing this video of Atomic Tom performing “Take Me Out” live on the New York City subway, using iPhones instead of instruments. Why doesn’t this happen on the Red Line?
