NEW YORK MINUTE
Tom Julian, senior vice president and director of trends for ad agency McCann Erickson, highlights holiday happenings in landmark public spaces for 2007.
The official holiday season begins with the 81st Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade strolling down Broadway on November 22, and for the 32 consecutive shopping days that follow until December 25, tourists and locals alike experience the Big Apple aglow and decorated in red, green, silver and gold.
Each major department store enchants and entertains shoppers with thematic windows that shouldn't be missed. Barneys on Madison Avenue is known as the most artistic, under the creative direction of Simon Doonan; Bergdorf Goodman shows the best of gift-giving with a theme of luxury and fantasy; Bloomingdale's turns Lexington Avenue into holiday lane; Lord & Taylor brings childlike wonderment to life; Macy's at Herald Square turns one of the busiest intersections into decoration central; and Saks Fifth Avenue transforms their store's facade into a wall of blinking snowflakes and music nightly.
