Sadly, we visited New York City many times before we ever walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. We had no idea what we had been missing! Now we tell everyone who visits for the first time to walk across the iconic bridge and soak in the amazing views of the city. It is probably among the most photographed sites in NYC, but do you have any idea what tops the list?
The Statue of Liberty you guess? How about the Empire State Building? As crazy as this sounds, the Apple Store on 5th Avenue appears to take the cake! Researcher Eric Fischer analyzed millions of pictures uploaded to the photo sharing site Flickr to make his case. Why the Apple Store? It’s open 24 hours day, in a very accessible location, and had a design influence by the man himself, Steve Jobs!
While I have nothing against Apple, I will admit that I’m a bit disgusted by this outcome, and the role materialism plays in our society today.
