I agree w/Lori Gross. I would shop there if there was parking. Otherwise the parking situation on Austin Street or anywhere around Forest Hills is horrendous to say the least.

As someone who has come to depend on my iPad and iPhone, I would welcome an Apple store in the neighborhood!

They don't have parking either at their three stores in Manhattan. We need the convenience of the shopping for Apple products and the BUSINESS and jobs that would generate to the community.
