Window Shopping: Visual artist David Hoey talks about the holiday magic behind the windows at Bergdorf Goodman.

05 Jan
There's a hint of snow in the chilly air, holiday shoppers are parading the block with one hand on their hats - boxes & bags in the other; and there's an obnoxious holiday tune being projected into the atmosphere (composed by Danny Elfman for Van Cleef & Arpels, which resides just next door to our current location). Yes, it must be that time of year. We're standing in front of Bergdorf Goodman with notable and talented window artist, David Hoey (who humorously tells us that the tune composed by Elfman is indeed NOT being emitted from Bergdorf Goodman). A true visionary, Hoey has been responsible for producing and maintaining the works of art that display on the corner of 5th & 58th for more than a decade. When it came time for us to tour the annual spectacle, we thought it sensible to catch up with the only man who could possibly turn a day of actual shopping, into window shopping.
