A glass panel at Apple 'cube¹ store in NYC shattered during yesterday's winter storm. It was one of the casualties of the snowstorm that hit New York City on Tuesday. The large glass panel was part of Apple's distinctive '"cube" store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

There may be something much worse looking than a cracked iPhone screen.

A 32-foot glass panel of Apple's flagship store in New York City is shattered but still standing after a snowstorm.

9to5Mac reports a snowblower accidentally knocked into the iconic glass cube at the entrance of the Apple store on Fifth Avenue. The estimated cost to repair it is $450,000, according to 9to5Mac.
