One thing I love about any big city – New York, of course, included – is how easy it is to stumble upon something amazing when you least expect it.
This past weekend, a friend was in town visiting. There wasn’t really anything in particular she wanted to see, so we decided just to wander: around Central Park, down the High Line, through Union Square, and to the Flatiron (with a quick stop into my beloved Fishs Eddy along the way). After hitting the Flatiron, we continued up Broadway. As we walked through Herald Square, I caught a glimpse of the windows at Macy’s and immediately stopped in my tracks: they were spectacular.
I soon realized that they were all decked out for Macy’s annual “Flower Show.” Apparently, this is a thing, but I was completely unaware of it, and so happening upon these displays was a very happy occurrence. Each of the windows was filled with the most vibrant, intricate floral displays. I couldn’t get enough, and I especially loved how I kept catching glimpses of the surrounding cityscape reflected in the windows.
I think the ballerina window was my favorite – those floral tutus! – but among this crowd, it was tough to play favorites; they were all quite impressive. The perfect springtime Saturday discovery!
