Every year, Macy’s has two window displays – the thematic one that changes with every year and, this, a depiction of “Miracle on 34th Street,” a display that’s the same year in, year out. If you’ve seen the movie before, then you’ll know what to expect from these windows. It may not have changed over the years but it’s that timeless quality that keeps bringing the crowds.
I’m gonna make a preemptive apology here – it’s about to get all Christmasy on this here blog. There’s a lot of fun stuff to take photos in this city during the holiday season and I’m gonna try to capture as much of it as possible. So first up is Saks Fifth Avenue’s annual projected light show on their building facade. This year, there’s translucent white snowflakes and bubbles while “the visual effects include snow gathering on ledges, bubbles emerging from windows, and the building exterior appearing to freeze over.” I got a few photos but I think it’s better explained with a video, no?

‘Tis the season to be jolly, no? I found myself spending way more time inside the Time Warner Center this past weekend than I ever have or thought I ever would. I was in there for at least three hours on Saturday and it’s not like I was even eating at Per Se!!! Being there after the sun set did afford me at least one treat – I got to watch their Holiday Under the Stars light and music show. Above are some photos of the snowflakes in different colors and below is a quick 30-second clip of the snowflakes changing colors, while “Deck the Halls” plays in the background.
