“I was curious to see what was going on and I felt really saddened when I heard that he passed away.”

Many New Yorkers leave flowers and apples with a bite on them—others with condolence messages written on them.

They leave bitten apples and large poster messages, like “Good Job” and “New York Loves Steve Jobs.”

“Thanks, Steve. You make my life easier to manage…and you gave us all things that just work.”

Others take pictures with their iPhones and iPads, and share their thoughts on the legacy Jobs has left behind.
