Macy’s Spring Flower Show 2014 – Herald Square, NYC – Better Luck Next Year!

Spring time in New York City means it’s time for Macy’s Annual Flower Show.  Due to renovations in the Herald Square store, Macy’s held the past two Flower Shows in a tent on Broadway.  The first year was a huge disappointment but last year’s show was spectacular.  This year, Macy’s held the show in their newly renovated show and I am missing the tent!

Aside for the large red dress display near the Broadway entrance, this lackluster show is more like a spring sale display than a true flower show.   This year’s theme is “The Secret Garden”, but you would never guess it.  There is no continuity throughout the store.  Maybe, that’s the real secret.  The 2011 Flower Show (which was the last in-store Flower Show) had much more personality and creativity.

The Macy’s Flower Show will held through April 6th.  But, just take a look at these photos and save yourself a trip.

All photos taken with the Sony RX100 M2

xmas12302013-1

I was walking through Times Square in NYC this evening and caught them testing the newly installed 2014. Thankfully, I had my Sony RX100 M2 with me. And, yes, the 14 is a different color. It changed from vivid red to soft white. One grand stand was already in place, possibly for Anderson Cooper [...]
