Top ways to experience Fifth Avenue
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.
How to get there
  • 34th St – Herald Square • 4 min walk
  • 33rd St • 4 min walk

If there is a store you can think of, chances are Fifth Avenue has one!

A great stroll with plenty of opportunity to see some of the iconic brands featured in NYC. Always a bit dangerous when carrying a credit card but good fun none the less!

The street to do from beginning to end. You will find a lot of stores to please yourself and bring back beautiful souvenirs
Like some pieces that are only sold in the US.

“I VISITED THIS PLACE”…
…. as part of my 28+K step and 18.2 kilometer walk through midtown and central Manhattan. Much of my journey was on this street- from 42nd Street to 93rd Street. I passed and visited all the stuff- and enjoyed it.

The NYC main artery, dividing Manhattan into east and west sectors is the world's most famous Avenue.
It has everything - world class most famous museums (Met and Guggenheim), passes by Central park, iconic and historic hotels, Rockefeller center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, most famous and expensive jewelry and clothes stores....you name it, it's there.

Whenever I'm in NYC, I always end up wandering down Fifth Avenue for the sheer pleasure of looking at the material excesses on display. Many of the city's (and mayhap the world's) most expensive stores and other properties are located here, and sometimes I like to look at the beautiful architecture. In warmer months, Fifth Avenue is also the frequent location of various parades, so you can stop and do a lot of people-watching as well. Northern Fifth Ave (starting at E 59 St) abuts Central Park, so you'll also have some greenery adding to the beauty of your walk. The topmost part of Fifth Ave is also known as Museum Mile due to the plethora of famous museums (like the Met).

Fifth Avenue is where all of the high end retailers are located. It is more residential as you head further uptown with very exclusive apartment buildings. St Patrick's Cathedral is located on Fifth Avenue as well. It was crowded for a Sunday afternoon with plenty of pedestrians with shopping bags.

There is so much to see along this long avenue. Years ago I had the privilege to march in a parade along the avenue and it was terrific to observe the beautiful buildings from the middle of the street. On this trip I was on Fifth Ave. to see Rockefeller Center and go to some of the museums on the Upper East Side. I also walked along the avenue just north of the Village.

We visited Fifth Avenue on 26th December.

As it was the day after Christmas, it was very busy, but that was to be expected. Most of the stores here were designer, do not expect everyday average clothing.

It is especially busy outside the "photo op" places, like Rockefeller Center and Saks. We walked inside some of these, like Trump Tower and St. Patrick's Cathedral, and while the former wasn't anything special, we loved the latter.

Will definitely be coming back if I'm ever in the area.
