Apple has published a virtual tour of its flagship New York Fifth Avenue store.

The QuickTime VR tour appeared on the company's retail website on Wednesday.

If you are unlikely to make it to New York in the near future, the page allows you to take a glimpse at the 24/7, underground Mac Mecca, which is capped with a distinctive glass cube on the surface of Fifth Avenue itself.

The tour lets visitors explore several aspects of the computer shop, including the way it looks at night and at dawn. The architecture of the store (particularly the aforementioned glass cube) and the 45-foot combined Genius Bar, iPod Bar and The Studio is also visible in the tour.

Apple has also made an image gallery from its shop available online.
