Everyone who visits Manhattan at Christmastime knows that Fifth Avenue is the place to be—the lights, the crowds, the brimming holiday cheer. Sure, you’ll miss out on the Ho! Ho! Ho! but even in summer, a quintessential New York day includes a walk along what is hands down, the country’s most glamorous thoroughfare. From fashion names like Gucci and Prada, jewelers like Harry Winston and Cartier and department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Henri Bendel, one after another, store windows are dressed to the nines. With a carefully curated mix of high fashion and cutting-edge art, the individual windows are exhibitions unto themselves. Take a stroll, day or night, keep your eyes wide and soak up the fashion and creativity without even walking into the stores. After all, window shopping is much kinder on the wallet!
