Apple’s meteoric rise since the 1997 return of Steve Jobs has many icons, from the iMac to the iPod, iPhone and MacBook Air. But none is quite so fitting a monument as the flagship Manhattan Apple Store on Fifth Avenue. After all, it’s a giant glass cube, as succinct a summary of the Steve Jobs approach to design as I can imagine. The monolith is an amazing image of the brand’s power.

What’s less known is that it might be the single-most lucrative store in all of New York. According to information uncovered by the New York Post, the owners of the building that houses the near-legendary Apple Store claim that the shop pulls in $440 million a year in sales. That location alone. By comparison, a nearby Zara flagship only does $25 million annually. Unreal.

I wonder how much the flagship Dell store does?
