LITERATURE Window at Bergdorff Goodman
Each year I try to make it in to NYC to stroll past the holiday windows. This year I’m super happy about the holidays as I have a Christmas release to help make the season even more jolly. WILD WEST CHRISTMAS is a beautiful Western anthology collection that I hope you’ll add to your wish list.
My usual route begins at the toy train sets in Grand Central at the MTA museum tucked behind the grand stairs on the west side of the station. They include a tiny Santa hailing a cab and a stuffed King Kong on the Empire State Building. Then I visit Lord & Taylor on 5th Avenue. Continuing north, I stop at the NY Public Library for their tree and free museum exhibits. Then it’s up to Rockefeller Center, Saks and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. I always peek at the gems in Henry Winston’s windows and Tiffany’s is right across 5th Ave.
Near the park are my favorite holiday windows, Bergdoff Goodman. After that, I visit the Plaza Hotel (a wonderful place for high tea) and then head east to Barney’s of New York and finally, Bloomingdales. Then it’s back to Grand Central for their holiday gift fair in Vanderbilt Hall.
If you’d like to see all the photos of my annual trip to see the holiday windows in New York City please visit my facebook page. For this post I’m only showing my photos of one stop on my walk.
The windows at Bergdoff Goodman are always my favorites because of their visual interest and the complexity of theme. This year their theme was THE ARTS. This one is called Literature and it is packed with wonderful quotes and images of famous authors all in bright shades of pink. I was in heaven!
One of the embroidered pillows had a quote from French poet, Stephane Mallarme reading, “Everything in the world exists in order to end up as a book.”
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
