Fifth Avenue is the main street that consists of many shopping complexes in NY. Street runs thru the city and hosts many brands on either side, some important lookout are Rockefeller center, Cathedral Church, Museum etc., An evening walk through the street is highly recommended to get a glimpse of this street.

What's the point about this Avenue? The point is, everybody visits it, window shopping or real shopping. Rockefeller Ce ter and Saks 5th Av, TRUMP Tower, Apple Store and a hundred other designer stores around. Crowds gather to take a pic from the stores well decorated windows: a real body to body combat!

This is the mecca for shopping. But don't go on Black Friday because the lines are long! And the street is so crowded. And, now that the sidewalk in front of Trump Tower is blocked off, the crowded sidewalks across the street are ridiculous. But it is a great place for a walk and window shopping.

What to tell you? You'll be on the main drag in all of New York City! World's finest department stores. Worlds most expensive real estate (or close). Where history is made! Home to Tiffany's, Central Park, Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Sachs. Trump Tower (for better or worse!) Take a stroll top to bottom, you'll be amazed every step of... More

Worth a stroll along and viewing the windows (especially at Thanksgiving). Not unlike Bond Street, London or Kensington.

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.
