NEW YORK CITY —

A snowstorm that moved through New York City Tuesday could go down in history as the most destructive storm… for Apple.

According to Today.com, “One of the casualties of the snowstorm that hit New York City on Tuesday was a large glass panel that is part of Apple's distinctive "cube" store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.”

Photos of the shattered panel were posted all over social media, showing the incredible-looking sight.

Witnesses reported that the incident happened when a clean-up crew knocked into it with a snowblower.

“The panel, one of 15 large panels that make up the 32-foot structure, could cost up to $450,000 to replace, according to 9to5Mac. The store, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, has remained open despite the broken panel,” Today.com wrote.
