Despite the cold, New York remains the most festive city this time of year. Tourists from all over the world descend to see the big Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, or to ice skate around it. In our special Hudson slideshow, we’ve featured that famous tree as well as a red lit one from the Standard Hotel in the West Village, where you can now also skate in the front as well, just for this season! But, perhaps nothing is more famous than Manhattan’s store windows. This year, Barney’s decorated with miniature celebrity chefs. Saks chose to feature colorful elves. And Bergdorf Goodman picked a Lewis Carroll theme. What else can we say, but Merry Christmas and good vibes for all holidays!
