With Hurricane Irene bearing straight towards New York City last Friday, many were dumbfounded when they saw the line in front of BAPE New York. Evident from past events, New Yorkers love great deals and would do virtually anything for them, even with a massive hurricane approaching. In fact, the queue became so long for the BAPE New York Pirate Store that management had to re-direct the gathered crowd to another direction during the sales event's second phase. The store would've continue throughout the weekend too. Unfortunately with mass transit shut down and its vicinity near the flood zone, BAPE decided to postpone the Pirate Store event till this weekend. Of course, you can be sure there will be a line again.
