Readers and moviegoers everywhere have been entertained by the adventures of The Boy Who Lived for almost 25 years, and soon New Yorkers will have a whole new way to show their love for Harry Potter. Warner Bros. is opening an enormous Harry Potter emporium in the Flatiron District: it'll be three floors and more than 20,000 square feet full of wizarding magic, making it the largest HP store in the WORLD.

Sure, it's a store, not a theme park, but WB is also promising interactive experiences and plenty of photo opps. Hopefully there will also be a cafe or restaurant with Harry Potter themed treats. Butterbeer for all! The store's Twitter account says it'll open this summer. Read more details and speculation here, and see the concept art below:
