Tiffany's Windows

There's nothing like 5th Avenue in NYC at Christmas. I'm not a shopper, I'm not crazy about crowds but it's hard for even the hardest types to resist a little softening up when you're in an environment like this - Tiffany's, Cartier, Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, Louis Vuitton, Harry Winston, St. Patricks Cathedral, Rockefeller Center with its tree and Macys not too far away. These are not just average places at Christmas - they are classic American icons. The festive mood is everywhere - the buildings, the lights, the music and the people. Many of the Christmas window displays of the top retailers along 5th Avenue are known worldwide and millions of visitors come to see them, in some cases lines are established for viewing. The windows at Tiffany's were quite beautiful with their winter scenes and slogan: The most Beautiful Time of the Year. I imagine many would not mind sharing the jeweled setting with that snowy deer ...

You're absolutely right, the christmas windows of 5th avenue are a treat. I expect that the great majority of people admiring them cannot afford what's inside, no? Still is a lot of fun to look at the displays.

Quite simply yours is the best NYC photo blog ever - I just love both your pictures and commentary! I have family in Brooklyn and am from the Philly area, so I try to get back to NYC as often as I can - there is no place like it!

Happy holiodays!

I went into Cartier's and the average item was $17,000.

The window decorations are one of my favorite things about NYC during the holiday seasons. Please include more of them, esp. Saks, Bloomies, etc. BTW, were you looking for a Christmas gift for someone? :-)

Great photo. I wonder if this is the same window that Audrey Hepburn stood in front of for that great shot of her at Tiffany's.
