Bloomingdale's holiday windows unveiled

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The evening started with a performance from the New York City Children's Choir. Beautiful, even haunting. The singing was held in the Bloomberg Rotunda across the street from Bloomingdale's, kicking off the unveiling of the famous holiday windows.

After the choir's gorgeous set was finished, on came Mr. Josh Groban. His set list included favorites like "The February Song."

Thousands showed up for the show. Cold, but huddled together for warmth, and smiling when he did a version of Charlie Chaplin's "Smile." No broken hearts here. Only warm ones.

After Josh's beautiful set, it was off to the main event. Behold, The windows of the world.

There's good cheer from China. Take a look at that dragon!

Festive greetings from France. Vive la France!

Merry moments from Italy. Magnifico!

Great gifts from Great Britian. God save the Queen!

And of course, bundles of joy from the Big Apple. Fuggedaboutit.

So, while I was sad the evening was over, I couldn't help but smile, knowing I got to see Josh Groban and the unveiling of the holiday windows at Bloomingdale's.

And that made me warm inside on a cold and windy night.

    New York's smallest piece of private land

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
