Tiffany & Co’s flagship Fifth Avenue store near Trump Tower in New York City is not canceling it’s iconic holiday display, after reports mistakenly said the light show was canceled due to new security protocols.
A spokesman for the jewelry company told NBC 4 New York, that Monday’s unveiling for the event was canceled but that the overall holiday show would continue. The company took to Twitter on Wednesday to post images of their display.
“Our iconic Fifth Avenue flagship store windows, which feature sparkling vignettes of New York City at the holidays, are now on display and available for all to see,” spokesman Nathan Strauss said. “Our façade will also be illuminated as planned.”
Tiffany & Co. has been at the center of a new security zone created to protect President-elect Donald Trump, since it’s located steps away.
Police officers have asked visitors and shoppers where they are headed before gaining entrance to the block Trump Tower is located, and some retailers fear the security surge will drive customers away, according to NBC 4.
The Fifth Avenue store has begun encouraging shoppers to enter through 57th Street while barricades along Fifth Avenue remain.
The store’s legendary window display has been a hallmark of the holidays in New York City for decades. This year’s display will feature a picnic in Central Park, a portrait of Rockefeller Center and a silhouette of the Manhattan skyline along the Hudson River.
