A Preview of Winter Walk

Every year on the night before Winter Walk, a group of anonymous judges reviews all the festively adorned shop windows for the Winter Walk Window Decorating Contest. This year, a small group of gallerists, representing the Hudson Gallery Alliance, descended on Warren Street and beyond to assess the creative, colorful, quirky, glamorous, and spectacularly delightful window decorations to choose the stand-out winners. This morning, Gossips learned who the winners are.

The “Five Golden Rings” Awards 

“5th Ave Spectacular”Award  
Finch, 427 Warren Street

“Met Gala Poinsettias” Award  
The Rosery, 128 Green Street

 “A Scrumptious Wonderland” Award  
Nine Cakes, 748 Warren Street

 “Reindeer Games in Retirement” Award

“The Woman in Gold” Award

Then there was the obligatory "Pear Tree Award" (Judge's Choice), which went to the Holiday Huts of Santa's Village in Seventh Street Park, whose renovation this year by volunteers at Lowe's in Greenport has been much ballyhooed on Facebook.
