Maybe people who build glass stores shouldn't use snowblowersJanuary 22, 2014: 10:39 AM ET
Apple's iconic Fifth Ave. store suffered collateral damage from Tuesday's winter storm.
FORTUNE -- According to 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman, the cost of the pane of glass on Apple's (AAPL) iconic Fifth Avenue store that was shattered by a snowblower Tuesday is $450,000, a figure he derived by dividing $6.7 million (the cost of the cube's late-2011 renovation) by 15 (the number of glass panels that replaced the original 90).
In retrospect, it would have been cheaper to stick with 90.
FUN FACT: According to a 2010 Cornell University study, Apple's glass cube is New York City's fifth most photographed tourist attraction, after the Empire State Building, Times Square, Rockefeller Center and Grand Central Terminal.
