On Saturday, Nokia unveiled a flagship story in New York on 57th St. and 5th Ave. It's the Finnish cell phone manufacturer's second flagship store in the U.S.; the first is in Chicago. The NYC store's narrow storefront, now entirely blue, is a choice piece of real estate sandwiched between the Burberry and Yves Saint Laurent stores. It is just a few blocks away from the southeast corner of Central Park, the Plaza Hotel (now condominiums), Bergdorf Goodman, and the Apple flagship store that opened in May.
