It is very easy to get around New York which there road systems which is very helpful for tourists. I was a little under whelmed by fifth avenue. You see and hear about it a lot in movies and things but there weren't as many shops as I had hoped. Also, as it was black Friday we expected some good... More

For first-time visitors in New York, this is the best area to stay as its walking distance to Central Park, Grand Central Station, Rockefeller, Times Square, and the shopping malls. It may not be ideal for budget-conscious travellers, but I believe it works out the same as you don't need transportation that much.

Live, love, love walking down 5th Avenue during the Christmas season and enjoying all the beautiful windows in the stores. 5th Avenue is fun anytime of the day or night any time if the year, but Christmas time is magical.

We were on 5th avenue yesterday. It was super busy, crowded. Long longs everywhere. We wanted to see the shop windows.

is chaotic now and is not worth visiting such a GREAT and gorgeous avenue. Shops are festive and the people are in a lovely hurry. Is now a bit of an inconvenience because is closed due to the Trump Plaza. :( Just wait

Walk past blocks of shops - Saks, Tiffany. Historical sites - Rock Center. As well as awe inspiring architecture - St. Pat's Cathedral and so much more.... wear your walking shoes and you won't be disappointed.

A stroll along 5th Avenue at Christmas is something not to be missed. From Tiffany's sparkling gems, to Saks music and light show, not to mention Rockefeller center and the Christmas tree. It can be a challenge just to get down the street but the lights and window decorations are a great distraction. The area to the north of Rockefeller... More

Tifanny's made this street very famous. Trump tower too. Now, before Trump gets the presidency of USA These two places are very protect by police. But fifth avenue has got another very interesting places like public library and others.

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.
