BROOKLYN — Apple has opened its first Brooklyn store at the corner of Bedford and N. 3rd in the hip neighborhood of Williamsburg.

The tech retailer best known for iPhones, iPads and Macs has finally arrived in Brooklyn and this is Apple’s 300th store in the Americas. The company has six stores in Manhattan and one in Staten Island.

To complement local architecture, Apple carefully rebuilt the original facade, replicating the historic archways that welcome customers to the store. The polished concrete floors and timber ceilings are lit by dozens of custom-built pendant lights made by a local artisan.

Apple Williamsburg will feature 120 employees who together speak 26 languages.

Located at 247 Bedford Avenue, the store is just down the street from a new Whole Foods supermarket that opened two days ago.
