the New York post.

No, not that post. My post! I took a trip to the Big Apple last weekend and wanted to catalogue some of the sights here.

First up: the windows at Bergdorf-Goodman. They came in 1st place in the arbitrary holiday window contest in the city, followed by Macy's and Barney's. It was really no competition at all. The winning windows were like the glory of Anthropologie on a massive scale, and I photographed all of them (and got screamed at by a man on the sidewalk while doing so, meh).

Another great spot was the Chelsea Market (hard to find, since any signage on the building is completely obscured by scaffolding, but well worth the expedition). It's a former Nabisco factory turned foodie market--think little bakeries and wine shops--not to mention a great spot for buying gifts, thanks to the indie Christmas market.

And what would a Christmas post be without a tree? I saw the tree at Rockefeller Center but I thought it was nothing compared to this--

--which gets its magical sparkle from broken compact discs. It's part of the market's eco-art display for the holidays (which also includes chandeliers made from disposable plastic cups). Here's a close-up of the CDs.

In tomorrow's post: Brighton Beach and Coney Island.
