Update: UNICEF Snowflake at Night

I posted the first UNICEF snowflake photo two weeks ago. That was taken during the day. Here is another photo of the snowflake taken at night.

The building in the background is the women's department of Bergdorf Goodman
, a luxury goods departmental store on 5th Avenue and 59th Street in Manhattan. The men's department is located in a separate but equally impressive building across the street. Bergdorf Goodman was started by Herman Bergdorf, an immigrant from Alsace, France, in 1899. The store was then taken over by Edwin Goodman in 1906 and became a popular fashion retail outlet. Today, Bergdorf Goodman is owned by Neiman Marcus, another luxury goods departmental store. Other name worthy buildings in the vicinity include the Apple Cube and The Plaza Hotel, which is currently being converted into a condominium.

Bergdorf Goodman also produces a very nice catalog/magazine each season. The items included in the catalog range from a $140 Ermenegildo Zegna tie to a $50,000 Mercedes Benz convertible.
