Christmas in New York —the run up from Thanksgiving to Christmas is the most magical time in New York City. From this giant Swarkovski snowflake suspended over 57th and Fifth Avenue to the smallest corner store, New York sparkles and shines.
Those who know me, know how much I look forward to my annual pilgrimage to see Bergdorf Goodman’s Christmas windows. They never fail to delight! And they are impossible to photograph. This year is a jazz age theme.
Outside Bloomingdale’s, two young, hip Salvation Army volunteers, rang bells and line danced to Christmas music. Needless to say their kettle was twice as full as the one with the two bored men down the block!
In my neighborhood, busy sidewalks are filled with the pine scent of hundreds of Christmas trees brought to the City by enterprising New Englanders and Canadians. Some of these sellers have been coming to the same street corner for years.
Anyone remember this design from Lord & Taylor Christmas several years ago?
