I think Forest’s mom was right when she said stupid is as stupid does. It’s pretty stupid to abscond with a 250-pound glass stair from the fancy staircase in the flagship Apple Store on 5th Ave in NYC. How exactly you would get it out of the store is an interesting question.
An auction over on eBay has said stair for sale by the guy who admits to nabbing it before the Apple workers could throw it away. The guy says it was cracked when a bottle was dropped on it and replaced. Said stairs allegedly cost $10,000 each.
I am betting at $10,000 the stair wasn’t going to be tossed in the dumpster outback. The guy reckons at $10K new, a cracked, stolen stair is got to be worth say $2,500. He won’t ship it either, you have to drive to Brooklyn, New York and pick it up.
