ChristmasWindows is the perfect guide to the holiday season in NYC but offers so much more too! While the holiday displays are gone, we’ll walk you through the Christmas Window tradition, and spill the beans on the larger than life stories of the city’s iconic retail houses. Tattoos, elephants, Canadian imposters, Presidential cheapness, burning skirts, supercilious French designers, lackadaisical French tailors and ingenious French smugglers, women shackled and women freed by the dictates of high fashion – we cover it all.

PlaceChase Christmas includes eight Places between 34th and 59th Streets. Our curated exploration offers a full morning or afternoon of enchantment, with some delightful only-in-NYC stories to boot, or take the deep dive into a single Place on your lunch hour or coffee break. As always, we include a host of historical images to go along with each Place. While we’ve included the trivia questions that are our signature feature, we’ve made it so easy – there are fewer challenges, they’re all multiple choice, and you can skip them if you wish -- we tell you exactly where to go. Follow our route or make up your own - you can explore the Places in any order, all at your own pace.

In common with all of our Chases, once you have downloaded the app, no further internet connectivity is required to enjoy your Chase. You may binge-Chase in a single session, or ration out the goodies as you choose. You may take the Chase as often as you wish. There is no advertising, we do not collect your data, and there’s no GPS usage to kill your battery.

Great App for Xmas!

This is the perfect gift for Christmas! It’s both entertaining and informative, with everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Macy’s, Tiffany’s, the Radio City Music Hall, Bloomingdale’s, and the Bryant Park Winter Village. AND there are treats and discounts given away too! Wonderful!!!

Developer Response ,

The treats are new for 2019. Glad you liked it. Tell your friends.
