It's been a wet, slightly grim week here in New York, and that means that we at least could use a bit more holiday cheer than usual. There may not be any snow covering the sidewalks yet (just puddles), but at least the holiday displays are out in full force. To get a taste, check out photographer Ian Gittler's slide show of the department store windows that make New York's midtown such an extraordinary place this time of year.
What holiday windows and other decorations have you seen in your travels that make you pause and take a second look? Let us know in the comments.
