Always wonderful to see and appreciate the Saks rich and glorious holiday windows. The laser show in the past was a reliable "wow" and magical spectacle. This year it is still big and joyous but lacks the "over the top" ingredient to sweep you away....More

Visited NY in December and loved the outdoor decorations, window displays and especially the synced light and music show! Another great way to put you in the Christmas spirit!

Initially I was disappointed in the Christmas displays on 5th Avenue. There are stores with elaborate windows but there are also blocks of stores with almost nothing. I expected more. But then I saw the Saks light show and all was forgiven. Thank you, Saks,...More

Bravo to Saks for their tremendous light and music show displayed on the front of their store for Christmas. Their window displays were the best in NYC. This story is near Rockefeller Center and is a few steps from the Christmas tree.

Maybe these window displays will change in December. I hope so. We came back to New York to shop and see the wonderful Christmas displays. But Saks is more like Victoria Secret. All Red windows with nothing but half naked female manikins. We were so...More

Different kind of display compared to Macy's...more grown up is probably the best way to describe it. Located just up from the Rockefeller.

Last Christmas the decorations were the best in NYC. The whole front of the store (which is a block long) made one massive fairy castle with the most amazing light show I've ever seen on a shop. The individual windows and inside decor was not...More

I went there to go to Christian louboutin boutique. Fabulous designer store. You don't need to buy (cos it's very expensive) just look and admire

I believe it runs every 10 minutes, Daily starting 5pm to 11pm between 49th & 50th Sts. Best viewing is from Rockefeller Center and then you can check out the Christmas Tree!
