New York City Holiday
Whether you’re out on a shopping expedition,
going to dinner, on your way to or from the theater, or just out for
a walk around town, you won’t want to miss the holiday window
displays featured at many of New York’s top retailers. Each season,
these retailers bring their creative holiday spirit to their window
displays, often with a unique theme each year. The artistry is
varied – trendy, traditional, magical. Window browsing is a holiday
tradition not to be missed!
Typically the holiday windows are launched
mid-November and on display until the end of the year. Once
unveiled, the lights and other display functions remain on 24 hours
