Winter on 5th Avenue

As I mentioned earlier, it's a tradition of mine to open the holiday season with a trip up 5th Avenue to see the Bergdorf Goodman windows.  I usually do this before Christmas when there are hordes of shoppers and I end up losing my temper with the crowds and running away screaming.  This year, I had the brilliant idea to trek up there after Christmas (duh!) when the streets were airier and more tolerable.

The show-stopper this year was this underwater mosaic scene (pictures don't do it justice):

I really loved this one:

And a detail from a display made entirely of black and white paper:

Meanwhile, at Saks...

I have no idea what Lady Gaga, bubbles and creepy little girls had to do with anything, but it was fun to look at.

More Bergdorf Goodman pics here.

  1. I love these shop windows. I did not get to see them this year!! Lovely photos. Tomorrow I am going to Soho and will take photos along the way.

  2. @Melanie - Bergdorf Goodman is always worth the trip to midtown. Believe it or not, I've never actually been inside the store!

    My favorite windows in Soho belong to Once Upon A Tart on Sullivan. They celebrate each holiday with wit and humor...

  3. Great shots! Macy's windows were a disappointment this year. Hard to believe the holiday's have come and gone.
