Karen's Christmas Time Trip to the Big Apple

Larry Adams, Don Mutch and I went on a one day bus trip to NYC in early December to look at the Christmas decorations. We jumped off the bus at 10:45 am and did not stop walking until 7:15 when the bus departed for the ride back to Delaware.

Macy's theme this year was "Believe" and everything was red (photo below). We rode the wooden escalators to the 9th floor, just for the fun of riding wooden escalators again. (Not that any of us are old enough to remember wooden ones!) The windows along Fifth Avenue were amazing, but because of the crowds it was difficult to take photos.

In the photo below, the star was suspended over 5th Avenue. It was lighted at night, but shone in the direct sunlight.

Bergdorf-Goodman had small windows for each month and the Judith Lieber Scottie bag was featured in the March window.
Don discovered the Scottie logo at the Juicy Couture boutique.

The Cartier building was a package wrapped with red ribbon, with awnings covered in greens and lights.
