Plenty of Bronx residents use Windows and Android devices. In gentry and affluent parts of the city like 99 percent use apple products.

They sure built up Brooklyn quick. They got minorities out, built the luxury condos, raised the rents to a point that only a lawyer could pay the it, made the area safe and now an Apple store, huh? How that borough has made a million strides. They sure pushed the working class outta that area quicker than anyone could have imagined.

Even Spike Lee hates it.
LOL. Spike Lee left that area because of its realness to the safe UES.

Never understand the Apple fanboy mentality. I only use "bank for the buck" products. Nexus 7 2013 $175, Moto G $25, Samsung tab pro 10.1 $197. My wife has a iPad air because she could get it at deep discount.

All I see is from the headline is

Apple, Whole Foods, J. Crew & Starbucks. Now all the area needs is a Hollister to make the hipster's life complete.

The roads are still horrible, I'm sure residents don't care as most take the train and walk.

"Apple" is a religion. Steve Jobs is their God. If you still don't understand, good for you. You spend wisely.

Pretty much this! Steve WAS EVERYTHING. All hail Apple. In Steve we trust.


Though I am an Apple fan/supporter I never understood why people think we're not like other avid buyers. Some people prefer Colgate over Crest. Some prefer Kraft Cheese over other cheese makers. It's something called choice. Just because I can afford Apple products whenever I want doesn't mean I don't spend wisely. In truth spending wisely is subjective because what's affordable for some probably isn't the same for others.

I could easily say I spend wisely on quality products, which in my opinion Apple makes.

Choice my friend. Choice.
