A Seasonal Display



Pure splendor and luxury,


A Bergdorf Goodman fantasy …


Characters larger than life!


Bears draped in crystal,


Divas belting out disco,


While Alice surveils the night.


These are just a few of the spectacular display windows surrounding
the exterior of Bergdorf Goodman on 5th Avenue in New York.


This was a Sunday 160 Challenge – a story told in 160 characters.
If you’d like to participate, just tell the Monkey Man.

I remember the Christmas window displays in all the downtown department stores of Washington, D.C. when I was little. They were magical.

Love these pictures.

Thanks for your comments, everyone! I'm glad I was able to share these images with you.

It was actually very difficult to get decent shots of the windows - because of lighting conditions and so many other tourists also trying to photograph them! But I was too blown away by their creativity and beauty not to try.

Happy holidays and best wishes to you all!
