Guessing Game is Over: Apple Takes Bite Out of Bedford

After much speculation, Apple has settled on a location for its first Brooklyn store, and as anticipated, it will be at 247 Bedford Avenue at North 3rd Street, the New York Post reported.
Lee NYC‘s Peter Braus led the team that represented the landlords, Red Sky Capital and Waterbridge, in the 20,000-square-foot deal at the two-story brick building. Apple was represented by Chris DeCrosta of Crown Retail Services and Open Realty. Mr. Braus declined to comment and Mr. DeCrosta didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
As Commercial Observer reported a year ago, the topic of where Apple would finally debut in Brooklyn had been an “industry parlor game at lease five years.”
