I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Holiday Window Display Viewing

What: Holiday Window Viewing

Where: Various Locations

Who: All ages

Our view: If you live near or are visiting a big city for the holidays a fun thing to do is go and see the elaborate holiday window displays. One of the best places to do that is New York City. Holiday windows in New York are usually well worth seeing. They go well beyond your average lights, tinsel and trees. Each store's windows are decorated around a particular theme which varies from year to year and store to store, and they may even include such things as music, Disney like animatronic figures and other things. This year stores with windows worth viewing include the following:

Bloomingdales  located at 1000 Third Avenue featuring holiday shopping around the globe.

Henri Bendel  located at 712 Fifth Avenue featuring work of the great illustrator, Al Hirschfeld.

Lord & Taylor  located at 424 Fifth Avenue featuring vintage New York City holiday scenes

Barney's New York  located at 660 Madison Avenue featuring 3-D mapping,light projections, and performers from the Upright Citizens Brigade/

Macy's located at 151 W. 34th Street featuring the magic of dreams through the eyes of a young boy

Saks Fifth Avenue  located at 611 Fifth Avenue featuring the Saks Fifth Avenue yeti

Bergdorf Goodman located at 754 Fifth Avenue featuring various holidays depicted in frozen dioramas of ice and snow.

Holiday displays run through early January. For more information about any of the specific displays  call the specific store and/or visit their web-site. Remember that the lines to view the displays can be quite long and slow moving so you may not want to take very young children or children who are easily bored.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for another Talking Topic.
