Photo by myself outside Macy's, at Sixth Avenue and 34th Street in Midtown.
The entrance to Macy's is usually decked out with lights strung up to resemble a giant Christmas tree, during holiday time.
All the windows of this large building are painted white, since the last thing you need to do in a store is gaze out the window. This is actually a very nice, old building with pretty details.
When walking around on a crowded sidewalk, it's easy to get caught up in what's in the store windows and forget to look up at the building itself. The stuff in the windows change with the fashion and season, but the gracious old buildings stay the same. At least we hope so.
