As seen in the windows of Bergdorf Goodman

The great thing about New York City is that you don't have to be wealthy to have very rich experiences - especially at Christmastime. Store windows, ususally over-the-top anyway, become colorful, intriguing peep shows on the city sidewalks. Macy's, Sak's, and a few others have such amazing, techno-wonder scenes in their windows that the areas in front are cordoned off to accommodate the long lines of people waiting to see the extravaganzas.

But I found the windows at Bergdorf Goodman on 5th Avenue packed with so many glorious things in such eye-catching ways that I took a few pictures. Try to look beyond the glare of the glass - most of what you're seeing is actually in the windows. I particularly love the one that looks down on the Red Queen, cards, and chess pieses. A Compendium of Curiousities, indeed!
