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.
