Street Style Special Edition: Fashion From the iPhone4 Queue

Nerds all around New York began lining up at the Apple store on Prince Street in SoHo sometime last night in anticipation for this morning’s iPhone4 drop. Perhaps being a bit naïve, I figured that since I had a reservation, I could stroll up early this morning and get right in line only to wait maybe 30 minutes max. Not the case. I got to the scene around 8am and the line was already wrapped 3 blocks--around the corner of Prince, up Greene, across Houston, and halfway back down Mercer. At this point I figured I had no chance at scoring my phone before it was time for work so I threw in the towel… but not before turning lemons into lemonade and snapping some street style photos of those braver and more patient than me willing to wait in line.
