The pictures , in this blog, were taken on November 19, 2013. It was the day before the “major stores” were to present their windows. It is my custom to see the Rockefeller Tree as they are preparing it for the holidays. I am no longer amazed that Thanksgiving has vanished before it is even celebrated. A future blog will highlight the completed Christmas decorations and lighting of the tree.
The photographs begin with 58 th Street and proceed down 5th Avenue to Rockefeller Center. I have not identified the exact locations so you can create your own adventure. However, I have highlighted some store descriptions to get you visually oriented.
- Directly across from The Plaza, Bergdorf Goodman offers luxury shopping items, and a decadent experience for anyone who wants to touch, see, feel, and splurge for the finer things in life.
- The Peninsula Hotel a wonderful Hotel. I include it as it has a great bathroom. Just go in front door up the steps to the rear. If asked, just say you would like to use the bathroom – they are very nice!
- What can you say about Cartier the Store – simply Stunning!
I found one window with a hint about Thanksgiving – Am I pushing it?
And, lastly a hanksgiving cartoon (Heart of the City). And, wishing you a happy Thanksgiving!
