For most tourists, a trip to New York City wouldn’t be complete without admiring all of the elaborate window displays fronting boutiques and shops like Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy’s, particularly during Christmas.
But not for me.
Who needs the glass panes of Bloomingdale’s when there’s J&R Music and Computer World? Not me! And J&R has even skipped winter with a showcase of my favorite kind of spring flowers.
It’s hard to see in the picture because of the reflection, but those colorful flowers are composed of Creative’s Zen line of digital audio players. From left to right, we’ve got the Nano Plus, the MicroPhoto, the Vision:M, and the Vision.
The last time I was in NYC was in 1999, so I don’t know how long this digital garden has been on display but it’s definitely in need of an update (as you can see, the new Vision:W, V, and V Plus models aren’t included).
Regardless, it’s great to see Creative getting more exposure. They’re still far from enormous billboards in Times Square and paintings on tall buildings, but a huge window at J&R facing Park Row is a nice start. And on a smaller scale, there are already a handful of print ads featuring the V and V Plus appearing in Maxim and other magazines.
