Holiday windows and displays at department stores in NYC 2013

Scroll through our slide shows and get a look at the recently unveiled holiday windows and displays at New York City's legendary department stores.


One of our favorite things to do during the Christmas season is tour the holiday windows that pop up at many of the department stores in NYC. Check out our photos of the city's most lavish window displays, then head out and see them yourselves. We've compiled one jumbo slide show with shots of all of the windows (everywhere from Macy's to Lord & Taylor), but scroll further down the page to see individual articles dedicated to the stores.
