Extravagant holiday windows light up Fifth Avenue

New York City’s department stores go all out

Every year, a stretch of Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan lights up with sparkling Christmas lights and extravagant window displays in some of the city’s biggest retailers.

Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, and Tiffany & Co. all play host to these ornate displays. Holiday shopping can be stressful—especially if you’re battling the crowds on Fifth Avenue—but ogling these beautiful shows makes it worth the trip.
