Fifth Avenue is to New York City what the Magnificent Mile is to Chicago and Rodeo Drive is to Beverly Hills. But it is longer, 6.2 miles from Harlem to Greenwich Village, and is lined with more world-renowned museums, businesses, boutiques, stores, parks, luxury apartments and historical landmarks that any other street in the world. And it is said to... More

From Central Park you have the Apple Cube (it was closed when I went) but the celebrated Tifanys Jewelery and the Trump Tower (lots of police and you can only see the hall). Looking at a church among skyscrapers, you have to discover it. Enjoy the moment, the senses and the people.

This is the time of year a walk down Fifth Avenue on your way to the tree you see all the department store decorations in their windows windows. Now that Trump is the president elect it's a good idea to avoid fifth Avenue for one or two blocks south of 57th St. as it is loaded with tourists, police, and... More

You feel like you are in the movies or something, walking up Fifth Avenue for me was unreal. Looking at all the shops and experiencing the hustle and bustle.Even making the odd purchase.

We loved wandering along this iconic street with a stop in at Tiffany & Co, which is 5 levels high! All the designer stores are here & even if you can't afford to shop it's good for a look.

We walked down a few blocks starting at Central Park. Lots of high end stores and other expensive units. Way to much for us. We lost interest and took another road.

This is a very fashionable shopping street. Most unique collection of American designers for the wealthy.

Go from Washington Square Park in the Village to Central Park - The character of 5th ave changes about every 4 - 6 blocks. You need deep pockets to live on 5th Ave, not to mention shopping of 5th ave.

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.
