Christmas windows in the City

Holiday window displays in Manhattan are integrally connected with Christmas in the collective consciousness of New Yorkers – and in that of the regular, or even occasional visitors too. They’ve become part of the tradition, glitz and glamour and beauty of the holiday season and there just can’t be Christmas in the City without them.

Here, for instance, are some takes from Bergdorf Goodman’s breathtaking displays, inspired by some of the city’s most iconic institutions such as the American Museum of Natural History,  Museum of the Moving Image, The New York Botanical Garden, New York Philharmonic and New-York Historical Society (there are also windows for Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)  and UrbanGlass but I have no captures of them).

Entitled ”To New York with Love”, a celebration of the city’s ongoing love affair with arts, history and music, they are simply spectacular.

And back to business with the commercial part and evening gowns – entrance in grand style guaranteed.


A ball in the Four Seasons, maybe?

  1. Fabulous. I haven’t been to NY in years and it’s been decades since I was there during the Christmas holidays. I have greatly appreciated this visit through your lens. Wishing you a joyous and inspiring New Year!
