Well it certainly lives up to its reputation as the shoppers dream area! There are a huge range of shops here and most of them have huge price tags in them to match! Still its certainly worth a stroll down Fifth even if it is to window shop!!

Having always wanted to go to NYC I had an image in my head of what 5th Avenue would be.. It is everything I envisioned and so much more! The shops, the hotels, the fashion and Tiffany's ohhh Tiffany's... Even to just take a stroll down it's iconic, an absolute must!!!!

Depending on what part of of Manhattan, the atmosphere of 5th avenue changes. Part of it has a lot of shopping, but part of it also lines Central Park. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is partly on 5th Avenue. It is packed with food trucks, entertainment and tourists. On the other side there are large apartment buildings with doormen with... More

On my last visit to NYC I spent more time on 5th Avenue than I had in decades. Having a teen daughter will do that to you. Lots of windows to browse and an equal number to go into.

Great area of NYC that includes many great shops, mostly high end shops like Tiffany. Trump Tower is also located on 5th avenue. There is also a very large Apple Store located here near Central Park. Good street to walk through if you are headed to Central Park.

Crowded during our visit at New Years, but everything was! Definitely not as crowded as Times Square though! Light show at Saks was worth seeing & lots of shopping.

Walking down this street alone is a stand out moment. The wibdow displays in the shops are amazing. Can be busy but it's expected on a main shopping area
