Holiday Windows are popping up at our favorite retailers throughout the city-the best time of year. It’s like visiting an outdoor fashion museum, but for free! Join the fun and excitement this holiday season, grab a coffee, take a stroll & enjoy the Holiday Windows along Fifth Avenue.

An ideal afternoon: Start with us, Shop Gotham, in the historical Garment District. Our fashionable and chic tour guides will navigate you through the city’s ultimate shopping mecca: private wholesale designer showrooms and plentiful designer sample sales. Since you will be in the “holiday shopping spirit” after all of your fab purchases on our tour, pop over to Bryant Park for a quick lunch break. Check out the Winter Village shops at Bryant Park and ice skating rink as well, it’s quite the social scene! Pop over towards 5th Avenue and walk (slowly) uptown towards Central Park @59th St and “window shop” into the sunset!!
