16 dazzling NYC holidays displays, mapped
Where to find festive displays in all five boroughs
From the towering tree in Rockefeller Center to outer-borough homes smothered in Christmas lights, New York City is a festive feast for the eyes during the holiday season.
If you’re willing to brave the tourist-clogged streets of Midtown, department stores like Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bergdorf Goodman will have their usual extravagant window displays. But for something different, consider heading outside of Manhattan—you’ll find a holiday train show, a lantern festival, and plenty of homes decked out in elaborate decorations that take months to install (and a small fortune to power).
Below, find 16 spots across the five boroughs where you can revel in the holiday season.
