Roof Leak Causes Flood at 5th-Avenue Apple Store, Recent Construction Blamed

Roof Leak Causes Flood at 5th-Avenue Apple Store, Recent Construction Blamed

The New York Post reports that Apple’s flagship Fifth Avenue Apple Store in Manhattan was flooded during heavy rains Wednesday morning. The flooding was caused by a leak in the store’s roof. The flooding began around 8AM while approximately 15 customers were in the store. Employees blame construction completed on the store last year for the leak.


The NY Post, via 9to5Mac:

According to one worker, today’s deluge of water may have been due to problems with construction completed last year on the roof of the store.”It’s because of the construction they did last year on the roof,” the worker said. “They didn’t do it right. There are large flat stones up there [that you walk across as you go into the store]. And with the heavy rain this morning, [the water] came through.”

Customer Errol Rappaport, 68, told The Post, I was down there at 5:45am because I had trouble backing up my computer and everyone started yelling. There was a leak then–boom–the whole thing opened up out of the ceiling. Then everyone started scrambling, moving tables…It didn’t look like there were any electrical issues otherwise they would have evacuated the store.”

The majority of the water was removed form the store by 10AM Eastern, and the location remained open to customers during the entire ordeal, with only the western portion of the store blocked off, and a single iPad display table covered in plastic.
