It’s been our family tradition to take an early morning photowalk to see the department store window Christmas displays and end up at the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree (actually, I’m the only one doing the “photo walk” — everyone else is just walking and viewing).
So, once again, my images of the various Christmas window displays we toured and my review with my flashbulb ratings.
Overall, cute displays, but like past years, Bloomingdale’s seems to want to have social media connectivity built into their displays that they want people to interact with. Except for the window where you could take a selfie from the window and have it display super size on the screen in the window, I personally think it’s too much interaction they want of viewers (and my other “photo walkers” agreed). Two flashbulbs
Always creative, Barney’s nailed it again this year. With a theme based on beauty, truth, love and freedom, their windows were very engaging, one with a mechanical mobile that was captivating. Five flashbulbs
Sak’s Fifth Avenue
The one thing that Sak’s uniquely does each year is tell a story through it’s Christmas windows. This year’s theme was “Once Upon a Time in NYC” and was quite clever. It too gets five flashbulbs (though I do wish the glass was less reflective for better photos).
Honorable Mentions. . .
Go to Tiffany’s and Salvadore Feragamo, which both had large and elegant decorations on their buildings.
