A sunny day, so not much wind let you see how the locals will be running in short sleeve (3rd week of February) where you're still dressed with wintery clothers! Any kind of shop is present, worth the walk!

As the premier shopping street, I think other cities have done better. I also think that the Christmas decoration was poor, relying on a handful of shops to do the work. I would expect at least a more festive feel on this street if nowhere else. That said, well done Saks for a spectatular the Christams light show and for... More

There's nothing better than getting in a taxi and asking to be taken to a spot on 5th - genuinely iconic shopping area but for me yet another place where you can wander around and take in all that is characteristic of Manhattan, NYC - you don't have to buy anything and quite often you wouldn't be able to afford...

The Avenue is very busy with tourists and New Yorkers and it offers plenty of restaurants and cafes to keep you going while you enjoy your shopping. The top end near Central Park is home to... More

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.
