New York Dreaming...on such a winters day

Every year at the Holidays I get Nostalgic for the days of living in the city. As the Holidays approached there was excitement and anticipation of what Barney's and Bergdorf's would do for their Holiday windows. During the time we lived in NYC Barney's was downtown in Chelsea on 7th ave, which was just down the street from our apartment. Their windows became a tradition to see if they could top themselves from the year before. Living in California is just not the same as New York at Christmas time, so I've had to resort to the internet every year to get my holiday window fix. Thanks to Racked.com and Zimbo.com I found what I was looking for, Hope you enjoy!

Bergdorf's Windows were a fantasy of beauty! I'm not sure of the theme maybe you New Yorkers might let us know, they are amazingly beautiful!
