Hi, everyone! I hope you had a very happy holiday!
Mine was quite low key, which I loved. My husband and I are kitty-sitting in Brooklyn, so I’ve spent lots of time walking around (it was in the 50s yesterday!), loving on Rodney (that’s the cat), and just relaxing. We decided to get Chinese in Flushing at the spur of the moment on Christmas Day and went to our favorite place, Biang!. It was wonderful, as always.
Last week, I spent some time walking up Fifth and Madison Avenues here in NYC. It’s one of my favorite holiday activities, so I thought I’d give you a New York Holiday Tour. You can pretend you were there with me!
The windows at Lord & Taylor were truly amazing and some of my absolute favorite. This year’s theme was “Enchanted,” so there were lots of cute mice in the bigger windows, as well as cardinals dressed up in holiday finery in the smaller windows.
We stopped to take a selfie! The next half mile or so near Rockefeller Center and was completely jam packed with people (tourists!) and not the most pleasant. My husband kept referring to it as “Hell’s Half Mile” … ha!
But we persevered!
If you get a chance, check out the documentary Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorfs. They talk to the man in charge of the windows, and it’s really interesting to see what goes into the project.
What’s your favorite window? Have you ever traveled to NYC over the holidays?
P.S. Check out my 2013 NYC Holiday Tour, too!
