It’s always fun to see how stores get into the holiday state of mind, but New York’s retailers take it to a new level. Shopping doesn’t even need to be done to get a full entertaining experience from Fifth Avenue. The likes of Cartier, Henri Bendel, Bergdorf Goodman, and Barney’s are known for the extravagant holiday windows and displays. Not only are the windows and mannequins all dressed up, some of the retailers decorate the outside buildings and sidewalks. You can’t help but get into the season with a walk along Fifth Avenue in December.
