Could Apple be planting a seed on a location near Lincoln Center? The Meatpacking district Apple store still has that new-store smell as Apple fever extends north. According to the Post, Apple is looking to take over space at the northwest corner of Broadway and West 67th, where there's currently a two-story Victoria's Secret store.

Apple is supposedly going to put up a new building, but it's not clear how much of the structure might be glass, a la the cube in Fifth Avenue. Right now, the neighborhood has a Barnes & Noble at 66th Street and Broadway, so if Apple does open doors there, it'll be another place for people to wait before a movie at the Lincoln Square AMC theaters ever since the Tower Records closed.

In fact, with the Towers Records space at 66th and Broadway across from B&N still empty for the past year, and scaffolding from Lincoln Center renovations, it's been even more of a bummer to walk around there. On the upside, there is free Wi-Fi at Lincoln Center.
