Heskel Group, a Queens real estate developer, is said to be in preliminary talks with Apple about opening an Apple store on bustling Austin St. in Forest Hills. If the deal goes through it would be the first Apple Store in Queens and the second in NY outside Manhattan (the other is in Staten Island). Heskel Group chairman Yeheskel Elias said that the store could be open in less than a year.  The Queens Economic Development Corp. said that the store could boost the borough’s cachet.
