Christmastime In New York City

While mid-December is not my favorite time of year for a business trip, this is the second year in a row that work has taken me to the Big Apple around the holidays, and I have enjoyed seeing how festive it is at Christmastime in New York City.

My work schedule was grueling, but since our meetings didn’t start until 9:00 am, I had time to run up Fifth Avenue and see the store decorations. 

I love how the Cartier building was decorated like a giant present.


The Harry Winston jewelry store down the street was not going to be out done!

Lots of people were taking pictures of the Saks Fifth Avenue windows.

I thought this one was interesting.

The Bergdorf Goodman windows had quite a different vibe.

Nothing says Happy Holidays! like giant grasshoppers!

 I wish I’d thought to run by Rockefeller Center when it was still dark,
but the Christmas Tree still looked splendid–and smelled amazing!

While a business trip in mid-December might mean
having to write your Christmas cards on the train home, it’s not all bad!

Since I took most of these pictures on my runs, I’m linking up with the Weekly Wrap Link Up hosted by Holly and Tricia. I managed three runs, two strength workouts, one indoor cycling class, and a 2 mile walk to the train station in frigid temperatures (22F!) hauling my luggage.

Does it look like Christmastime in your city?

Can you believe I have another business trip this week?

    Well it is really cool you got to see the city 🙂
    Hauling luggage in freezing temps counts as a work out for sure! Hope you have a wonderful holiday 🙂

    Both of my trips to NYC were in late November and I was able to enjoy many of the holiday decorations. Both times, the tree in Rockefeller plaza was already there — but covered with scaffolding. I would like to see it in all its glory. The designers for the store windows are clearly thinking outside the box. Or under the box, perhaps! Thanks for sharing these pictures and linking with us, Coco!

    how fun! I think NY would be a neat place to visit this time of year, but I’d much rather go somewhere warm with a beach.

    Lucky you to have a business trip in NYC.

    I agree. The holidays in NYC are magical.

    If you read my blog, you know how much I love NYC!!

    Too bad, we weren’t there at the same time. I was there last Sunday.

  11. I love NYC and have always wanted to visit when it’s decked out for Christmas. Just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing these pics!

    What kind of business are you in?

  12. When we lived in NYC I use to love to stroll down 5th Ave and check out all the store windows. The City does do Christmas right!

    Sorry your schedule was so crazy! I hope you’re getting a little time off around the holidays.

    NYC is perfection at Christmas.

    Our downtown does a huge lights display throughout the city. It’s pretty Christmasy but nothing like Manhattan.

  15. I love NYC at Christmas time! I’ve never been to Macy’s Christmas village until I was an adult but had I gone as a child I would have totally believed it was santa’s real workshop. It’s just magical!

    Enjoy your next trip.

    I’ve never been to NYC so I’m living vicariously through you a little bit here. This scenery is absolutely beautiful! I’m currently living in Miami and the vibe is just different here. It looks like something out of a movie up there. Enjoy your week ahead! 🙂

    What beautiful pictures!!

    In all the times I am in NY during the holidays can you believe that I have never been to 5th ave!!

    I love the tree ….I am always so amazed that the big tree can have such a beautiful scent. My little tree in my house barely has a scent…lol!

    Way to multi task on the train. I have never been consistent with Christmas cards. I finally got around to doing the 2017 calendar gifts for the family…they came out well.

    Good job on your workouts and safe travels!

  20. Oh Christmas in NYC is so pretty! I was actually in Queens over the weekend but didn’t make it into Manhattan. My neighborhood is pretty festive but I still want to drive around and see more holiday lights!
