Christmas Windows, New York City, 2015

First, I didn’t get any closer to the tree at Rockefeller Center, because crowds.

Second, as I said before, I wasn’t blown away the windows I was passing by as I walked up Fifth Avenue. So I spent some time photographing other people looking at the windows.

I enjoyed the ones where they decorated the entire building, like Harry Winston’s. There was actually more going on than I show here. Every window going up to the roof was decorated.

Tiffany’s always does a good job. Instead of going for pizazz, they build these small, charming tableaus, which are Nutcracker-magical.

My other favorite was Bergdorf Goodman’s windows, for the color, drama and sparkle.

My last shot is at Barney’s, where they had a guy making ice sculptures right there in the window. Unfortunately I arrived when he was cleaning up after the last one and I was too impatient to wait for the next one.

    Hi Stacy; Thanks for posting these gorgeous Christmas photos! I’m a long-term lurker on your site. I think I found you years ago through Citizen Reader (an ex-colleague) and kept coming back for the NYC photos. Oh, and your books. I’m an ex-New Yorker (well, Long Islander) stranded in the Midwest, so it’s awesome to get a little touch of the city.

    Happy Holidays!!!
    Lisa

    Hi Lisa! Thank you so much for the compliment AND for being a long-time lurkrer.

    I grew up in Huntington. Where did you grow up?

    I grew up in Commack, so we’re neighbors of a sort. I went to Holy Family DHS in S. Huntington.

    I’m looking forward to your new book!

    Loving your Christmas decoration photos. I miss NYC!
