December in New York City means retailers reveal their best attention grabbing window designs of the year. PSFK surveyed from the traditional boutique region of Madison to the flagship store stretch of 5th Ave and ending in Soho. With the economy still trying to level out, the 2013 holiday retail season in the city saw a lot of stores pushing strong sales messages over flashy visuals. There was also a paring back of elaborate displays from years’ past. Some retailers moved completely away from any Christmas references.

Here’s our picks for the best creative, artistic, edgy and visually exciting windows scattered around Manhattan:
