Not merely loved for its Christmas windows (the city's best), plush BG, at this location since 1928, leads the fashion race, led by its industry-leading fashion director Linda Fargo. A mainstay of ladies who lunch, its draws include exclusive collections and a coveted women's-shoe department. The men's store is across the street.
