We're here at Microsoft's flagship store on New York City's Fifth Avenue

Today, Microsoft is opening their flagship store right in the middle of New York City at Fifth Ave. and 53rd Street. The store is five floors, 22,369 square-feet and by far the largest of the hundred or so that have already opened across the U.S. Not only is the store the largest, but it also just a few blocks from the iconic Apple Store, which no doubt was planned.

We're here in New York City to cover the event all day, including a tour of the store. The ribbon cutting kicks off at 11:30 ET, although we are not expecting it to be streamed. The store itself is opening at noon. We'll be in the media section recording as much as we can, so expect a follow-up article later today with that and a quick look at the new place.

Grand Opening

Anyone planning on a trip to New York City soon? Will you be visiting this massive retail outlet for Microsoft?
