Our Favorite Holiday Traditions in NYC

Bergdorf Goodman window, 2011
My favorite NY holiday tradition is doing a 5th Avenue stroll with friends to look at the amazing store windows, especially Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman. We each get a cup of hot chocolate and take a nice stroll from Saks to Central Park and pop into FAO Schwartz to marvel a the cool toys we never had and then end with burgers and fries at Burger Heaven! - Allison Mui, Public Relations 

My favorite NYC holiday tradition is walking up and down 5th Avenue and looking at the holiday window displays. The Bergdorf Goodman windows are like grand theatrical sets – so inspiring! - Lauren Fitzgerald, Marketing

New York at the holidays means a meandering, chilly but glorious walk from the Lincoln Center fountain (makes me think of Moonstruck, even though that didn't take place at Christmas) to Central Park and ending at the Columbus Circle holiday village for snacks and hot chocolate. - Katie Carroll, Digital Services

If my parents come in from Cleveland, we always make it a point to bundle up and check out the window displays at the major department stores. Seeing those detailed little stories set against the hustle and bustle of 5th Avenue and Herald Square is something that you just can’t get anywhere else.

I’d probably have to say that my favorite annual tradition is the holiday party in my building lobby. The party isn’t anything fancy—just potluck—but it gives us the opportunity to learn a little bit more about our neighbors and all of the different types of New Yorkers represented in just one building. - Jamie O'Brien, Marketing

I love to look at the window displays at the big department stores (especially late at night when there aren’t any crowds, so I can take my time). Each window is an imaginative, beautiful and inspiring little world of its own. - Carrie DuBois, Programming

Can you tell, New York? The New Victory staff just loves your holiday windows! Maybe we should install some at the theater so we can decorate ourselves...
