They are across the street from each other and you cannot see one without seeing the other. Saks and it's brilliant light show and The Tree! They stand in at attention and light the way for tourist and hometown folk to enjoy.
For the past few years, Macy's has done interactive windows. On 34th street side, the windows had buttons, you would step on to make, Santa Fly, put toys in the bag, and have fun. This caught the eyes of young and old....grown ups especially had a good time being a kid again.
On the Broadway side, the windows were message and brightly colored with lights.

Always a show stopper Bergdorf never disappoints, the artful designers use every corner of the window. This year they had a message LOVE, HOPE, HARMONY, JOY, GOODNESS.

I wasn't going to do it this year. I thought maybe the stores didn't even decorate......BUT I WAS WRONG.
A friend encouraged me to go, so I grabbed my mask and took a short walk. 5th Ave was lit like they had been doing for years, with these little characters dotting the Avenue.
This is 5th Ave from 53rd - 57th Streets.
