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.

More Saks.


  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.
