New York Lights !

It's that time of year for a look at the Xmas lights. The big tree at Rock' Center seen in miniature from 5th Avenue.
Where your light on your Xmas tree as a skirt on Madison Avenue...
Or just hang your tree with many jeweled baubles.
Park Avenue always has a line of lighted trees adorning the street.
One blue-lighted tree on Madison Avenue.
Van Cleef and Arpels has holiday lights of another kind - a diamond necklace in a snow storm.
Cartier always has a big red lighted bow on the building.
And the windows are full of articulated boxes revealing shiny diamond necklaces.
This Bergdorf crock has his diamond eye on you.
Fendi's Fifth Avenue has icicled belts on it's facade.
Alliance Francaise de Washington has lite up its facade.
Jimmy-Jack is out looking for holiday lights in Paris...
Even New York Sabret wagons are lit up like a tree...
Well they always are aren't they?
BONJOUR NEW YORK LIGHTS!

Love the watercolors, Carol, and the NY photos make me nostalgic, remembering all the wonderful store windows as a kid growing up there. I want a tree skirt like that.

I need to shoot at night when it isn't quite so freezing.
Not to worry

Great photos Carol - great night shots.
I especially like the "blue tree" & Bergdorf's croc!
I have been to NYC at Christmas time and it is a visual delight (if you're not freezing :)

Love that crocodile!!! Could you hear the watch ticking?

Hello Carol.

I love your photos of our fair city this time of the year. I went out with my camera a few weeks back before the super freeze set in.

So...if you or any of your readers want to see some more examples of New York in early December, I invite you all to stop by. (Don't you hope the temperature gets above freezing soon? xo

Lovely lights! I think the U.S. has one up on Paris when it comes to lights in trees.. Here in France, it's so haphazard with no real thought put into it.. Sorry to bag on it- but where I live, they're just put in trees and it looks really lame... haha!

Love the Xmas lights! I saw some lavender/light purple tree lights at Columbus Circle when I was there last month, very pretty.

Amy said...

Thanks for lighting up my day, Carol! My cats peed on my Christmas tree skirt and I got so mad that I lost all interest in decorating anything after that. I'm living the season through your gorgeous photos!

I love the Fendi facade! Amazing!

Irene said...

I love this post! I particularly like the girl looking at the necklace. A woman in waiting, and all the magic of lit vitrines in her eyes.
