The Windows At Saks

The Saks Fifth Avenue department store is located exactly in the middle of New York City at 5th Avenue and 50th Street, directly across the street from Rockefeller Center. This area is so crowded during the day and evening that it can be difficult to walk on the sidewalk. So I stopped by at four in the morning to take these shots.

It was kind of cool to have the whole street to myself, actually.

The motif they chose this year was the snowflake. You can see that the windows themselves are in the shapes of snowflakes.

The "story" in the displays is the journey of an ice crystal that joins with other ice crystals to finally form a snowflake.

Next up: Lord & Taylor.

Good photoes really I like your weblog alot. I hate to keep asking questions but what happened to all the center caps on that cab do those just fall off or do people take them off or what?

MJ - the hub caps provided by Ford are small and difficult to re-attach once they are taken off. So they do tend to fall off because they aren't put back on snugly. We aren't required to have them on the wheels by the Taxi & Limousine Commission, so replacing them is given low priority. Glad you enjoy my blog and I'm glad to answer any questions - keep 'em coming.

Thank you for the pictures! You do that very well.

We are required by the city to replace our hubcaps. Most of our cabs have those stock Ford hubs. Eesh.
