Introducing the ultimate holiday windows tour in New York brought to you by idk tonight! Tonight, check out all of the stunning window displays and come to realize how lucky you are to live here and witness this firsthand with your love. Peak the map below to see the route!
1 — Macy’s Herald Square — There is one set on Broadway between 34th & 35th street, and another set along 34th Street. This year’s theme is “Believe In The Wonder Of Giving” and features Sunny the Snowpal in various settings. There’s even an interactive video game that lets viewers zoom Sunny through snowflakes as he tries to catch up with Santa’s sleigh.
2 — Lord & Taylor — 5th Avenue between 38th and 39th street. After 104 years in business, Lord & Taylor is sadly closing shop (and will become a WeWork space in 2019). This year, its five windows are decorated to celebrate their everlasting legacy and act as a thank you to New York City. We’re not crying, you’re crying.
3 — As you walk up 5th Avenue, stop by the holiday market at Bryant Park and take in the magnanimous New York Public Library.
4 — Saks Fifth Avenue — Saks’ window display is located on fifth avenue between 49th and 50th street. Their theme this year is called “Theater of Dreams,” and is an ode to the “grandeur of the Broadway stage.” We’re all about the Emerald City-esque shoe emporium.
5 — After Saks, continue on by waving to the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center.
6 — Next up: Tiffany & Co., which is lavishly decorated with winter holiday scenes, dripping in diamonds and sparkles — with a touch of that Tiffany blue, of course. We love the giant crystals adorning the façade of the building most of all. This year’s theme is “Believe in Dreams”.
7 — Bergdorf Goodman is just across the street at 5th Avenue between 57th & 58th. This year, they went a “treats”-focused route, displaying lavish feasts in stunning scenes. Not sure what that has to do with what they sell, but we’re into it!
8 — Barneys New York — Continue on to Madison Avenue between 60th and 61st. Don’t expect Santa and snowflakes here. This year, Barney’s theme is “Make Change” and it focuses on Save the Children—a nonprofit that helps fun early childhood education programs. Barneys, you win.
9 — Bloomingdales — Last but not least, Bloomies windows will be on Lexington Avenue between 59th & 60th. Inspired by The Grinch, their windows tells a beloved story about a holiday hater turned merrymaker. Plus, the windows offer some high-tech interactive features. The first window allows passerby to take a selfie which then appears inside the window next to the Grinch’s head.
Free To Enjoy!
