The Windows at Lord & Taylor

When I started this series of pictures of the department stores' Christmas windows, I promised to show them all: Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Saks, Lord & Taylor, and Bergdorf Goodman. What I didn't know was that Bergdorf Goodman, the ritziest of all these stores, doesn't do Christmas windows. They have winter scenes promoting their merchandise, but no holiday themes. Apparently they are too cool to play that game. No wonder I never go into Bergdorf's. Also because I couldn't afford to buy a paper clip in that store.

So here are the windows of Lord & Taylor. As I did last week at Saks, I showed up at 4 AM and this time had 5th Avenue between 38th and 39th Streets, where the store is located, all to myself.

They took a fifty-year period of time in the 1800s in New York City as their theme.

So that wraps up the Christmas windows.

And now, to wrap up the year, I'd like to thank everyone who's been reading this blog and offer to you this New Year's wish from a taxi driver:

May your best days be yet unseen,

And may all your lights be green.

And here's an Irish blessing for you, Happy New Year.

May those who love us, love us.
And for those who don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if he can not turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we may know them by their limping.
