A walk down 5th Avenue is worth doing. At the upper end (near central park) most stores o not have prices in the window, if you need to ask you cannot afford it!!! As you get towards Time Square the stores are more run of the mill, in any case it is a good walk with plenty to see.

Lots of big name shops, well known buildings but that's kind of it. But of course you have to go, don't you...when in New York and all that...

If it's your first time in NYC, you need to walk through the 5th Ave. It's just emblematic. But after that one time, you may walk through and pass by zillion times, and it'll be just another busy street.

It's very long so there is a lot to see. St. Patrick's, the Empire State Bldg., lots of new skyscrapers. It runs on the east side of Central Park and some of the prettiest park development is there, as well as many important museums on the East Side.

This is best toured with a guide who can tell you who lives where, who has lived where, and the history.

Good selection and loads to pick from a little pricey. It's vast so if you don't know what you're looking for you can get lost

Fifth Ave is impressive when you're there. However, we were probably expecting something a bit more. High end stores - yes. Lots of people - yes. Unique - no.

Very New York, pick any area, from uptown with museums to midtown with Rock Ctr and Tiffany's and Cartier, to further downtown with commercial area to the end at Washington Square Park and NYU!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
