Pinky’s Space is an adorable little French / Southern Comfort Food restaurant that always has something fantastically Pink and eye-catching displayed in its front window. When I passed by on a recent Saturday afternoon, I had to cross the street to get a snap of this adorable Pink Gorilla and his little Japanese friend, Domo. I want to eat there.

Pinky’s Space is Located at 70 East 1st Street (Just West of First Avenue), East Village New York City

On the Saturday that NYC experienced its first snowfall of the 2017 Holiday season, I strolled by the Bergdorf Goodman windows on Fifth Avenue on my way to see a movie at the Paris Theatre. Even in the snow and related bluster, the sidewalks were clogged with tourists lined up to take photos and selfies in front of this gorgeous tableau, and you can see why! Check Them Out!

Bergdorf Goodman’s holiday window displays have long been a festive cornerstone on Fifth Avenue and this year, the department store continues its tradition of visual storytelling with an exhibit titled To New York, With Love. Each window is dedicated to a world-renowned NYC cultural institution, such as the New York Philharmonic, the American Museum of Natural History, and the New York Botanical Garden.

I believe that  To New York, With Love will be up through the end of January, as the next set of windows are scheduled to go up in February. Watch a fun and fascinating video of how these windows came together at This Link!

It must have been some kind of cosmic coincidence that, while walking to the train after attending a late night Birthday party for Randy Jones, best known as The Cowboy from ’70s Disco legends The Village People, I passed right by the iconic NYC department store, Bergdorf Goodman, and got a face full of this mind-blowing, disco ball extravaganza window display.

My Favorite Color is Rainbow

My Favorite Color is Rainbow is just one in series of over-the-top window display tableaus created by W Magazine in honor of Italian fashion editor and stylist Giovanna Battaglia‘s new book Gio_Graphy: Fun in the Wild World of Fashion. The hardcover book is described as, “A witty guide to living the glam the life from an international style star, featuring hilarious anecdotes, fashion advice, and much more. Dubbed a “cyber icon” and “fashion heroine” by the New York Times, Battaglia is known for her colorful street style and fun-loving personality. Her monthly column in W chronicles fashion, art, and adventure. In this, her first book, she has written an irreverent how-to guide for dressing for every occasion, finding fashion inspiration, living stylishly, and having fun while doing it. Heck Yeah!

Covering style and beauty for daytime, nighttime, travel, and work, this book is brimming with chic and inspirational wisdom, from how to pull off bold fashion moves like barely-there tops, enormous hats, and powerful reds; advice for how to survive fashion emergencies (like what happens when you show up to an event in the same dress as someone else); and her secrets for donning multiple outfits in a day (bodysuits are key). Also featured are tips and tricks she has learned from fashion-world friends. Filled with humor and style, this is a must-have book for anyone interested in fashion and having a good time.

If you can’t make it to Bergdorf Goodman (located at 754 5th Avenue (at 58th Street), New York, NY 10019 you can buy the book (which has a publication date of October 24, 2017) at This Link!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Rubber Ducks in a Mr. Bubble Window Display!

Mr Bubble Window Display

On the day of the #NotMyPresdent’s Day March, I got separated from the people I had come with and, due to crowd-control efforts,  I ended up having to take a detour all the way over to Broadway in order to come back around and find my friends waiting for me on Central Park West.  And it was there on Broadway, somewhere between 65th and 68th Streets, that I passed by this store window display for Mr. Bubble, which also featured many Hot Pink Rubber Ducks. Awesome.

Christmas Things That Are Merry and Bright: Midtown, Manhattan

On the Saturday that fell over the Thanksgiving long weekend, Geoffrey and I had the bright idea that it would be a fine time to visit the Museum of Modern Art. By 2 or 3 in the afternoon, we felt sure that the crowds would have thinned out and we could just slip through the line and see some rad art. HAHA, how funny to have thought that, as we quickly discovered that the place was ridiculously mobbed and the lines were so endlessly long, that we had no choice but to bail on the idea of seeing any art that day. However, we decided to at least “take advantage” of the fact that we were actually in midtown, and perhaps do some window shopping and a bit of sightseeing.

You may know that in a recent post that I admonished anyone who wants to maintain their sanity against even trying to be in the vicinity of midtown Manhattan during the Christmas season, because it will make you hate your life. But what made the trip worthwhile was getting to see all of the fantastic Christmas holiday decorations that make for some terrific photographs.

The photos in this post were all taken between Radio City, located at the corner of 6th Avenue and 5oth Street, on Fifth Avenue just a few blocks downtown, and then west through the 40s towards Times Square. I didn’t always take note of an exact addresses, but if you walk around that general area, you should be able to spot most of these. Because, they are kind of big and, well, lit up.

Chase Plaza Red Christmas Balls

These oversized Red Christmas Balls are an annual fixture in the fountain at Chase Plaza, 1251 Avenue of the Americas.

Night had not quite fallen, so I’m not sure if they are illuminated in the darkness, but I would guess that perhaps they are.

Reindeer and Red Trees

I really love these reindeer sculptures, and the bare trees wrapped in tiny red lights. I believe this is just down the street from Chase Plaza, but don’t hold me to that.

Giant String of Christmas Lights

This colorful String of Over-Sized Christmas Lights is in front of the McGraw-Hill Building, Located at 1221 Avenue of the Americas.

Tree of Lights

I am pretty sure this Holiday Tree of Golden Lights is inside a building that’s just one block further downtown than the Giant String of Christmas Lights. I love the fact that I captured a man working on this display.

Silver Christmas Balls

These assorted sized Silver Balls were inside a  clothing store  window. I didn’t  notice  which one.

These Giant Christmas Balls sitting atop a pair of revolving doors were possibly on W. 49th St. as we walked towards Times Square.

I hope you enjoyed my photos! Merry Christmas, everyone!
