There are only 2 such stores in all of the USA – Chicago and New York City.
If you are a die hard fan of Nokia, then you MUST visit this place if you happen to visit any of the two cities.
The ambiance is just brilliant ! Its like a jewelery shop with all the diamonds in glass casings. Here the diamonds are Nokia Mobile phones .. You can find several colors of the same popular model on display. And the best part is that the phones work and you are allowed to use them.
