Well, I couldn’t just do the West Village, could I? That wouldn’t be loyal. Plus there are just too many pretty townhouses all dressed up for Christmas on the UES to not do a post or two about it! I hope you enjoy seeing a glimpse of how uptown does the holidays:

I love the Carolina Herrera holiday windows on Madison Avenue (fun fact: when I first moved to the city I actually saw her walking into her own store!).
