Just an otherwise normal morning at Grand Central Station in NYC...
But you'll see some apple employees directing customers to the line which has formed for the iPhone 5 which goes on sale here at 8am.
Eager shoppers have been herded into one of the humid lower areas of the train station and roped off.
Alex Cardenas is the first on line, though there was some confusion about who was here first (Apple only officially sanctioned a line in this location around 5:15am when the terminal opened).
Shivanand Manraj, claims he was actually first in line when he arrived last night at 7:30pm... then lost his spot in the shuffle downstairs.
Those in line were given little vouchers to prove that they'd been on the line...
Karim Horaoui actually flew to NYC from his home in Morocco just to buy the iPhone 5 and be "the first in his country" to have one.
Around 7:30 the line was moved upstairs and out of our view.
Alex Cardenas proudly walks first.
Police keep an eye on the action as customers are escorted upstairs.
Jonathan Green was out of the store as soon as he made his purchase, desperate to use a bathroom. He got on line at 2am.
Yuki an Marki Lin both bought phones-- one each for themselves and one for a relative back home in China.
Yousra Atmen is thrilled with her purchase thus far.
Karim Haraoui can't wait to show off his new iPhone back home in Morocco.
