New York at Christmastime

I showed you the Christmas windows at Macy's a few weeks ago.

tonight, as I am hibernating during the first blizzard of the season, I thought I'd hsare Rockefeller Center and the windows at Saks and Lord & Taylor.

After we saw Finian's Rainbow the other night, we walked over to Rockefeller Center to see the tree:



 
 
 

The tree is topped with a crystal star, and another similar star sits on the ground for people to see up close:


 

there are also 10 foot tall toy soldiers, and life sized angels in the plaza:




 

 

if you look at the wall of Saks 5th Avenue (the flagship store), you might get a special treat:




the windows at Saks tell the story of Twinkle, a star:




then we walked down 5th Avenue.  here's a shot of the Empire State building, blue and white for Chanukah:




the windows at Lord & Taylor have a Victorian theme:
