This is a two day project because there are so many absolute must see stores. Thank goodness they left room for restaurants

Want to see the largest number of flagshipstores in the world? You can find them on Fifth Avenue. Want to show the homefront what New York feels like? Take a picture of the traffic, you will capture a lot in one shot.

Just because it is fifth avenue in New York City. The street is nice, it's fun to look at all the stores and fanciness of it all.

This avenue has its high fashion part, the museum mile partand so on. If you walk through this Avenue you also can visit the Central Park. Must do!

Like jogging in central park and walking over Brooklyn bridge, seeing and shopping in Fifth avenue is a must for all visitors to NYC. You feel like a movie extra just walking down this iconic street...in many way the centre of NY commerce and the heart of Main St USA. We shpped in Tiffany's and the Apple store is amazing.... More

This is a must do while in NY. The street itself, the buildings, the incredible stores you won't get a chance to see, the way you see them there, anywhere else. Make sure you visit Tiffany's. It's one of the most beautiful.

As a first time visited to NYC, I expected Fifth Avenue to be much like Oxford Street in London. Although it has some similar shops and some more upmarket ones, the shops are very spaced out and there aren't so many of your regular 'high street' shops, meaning there's a lot of walking and map reading to be done.

While the pedestrian traffic was certainly very heavy on the world-renowned shopping Avenue number five, I would say that it was on par with the density of shoppers along the Magnificent Mile in Chicago's shopping district. My girlfriend wanted to make our first stop, of course, at the original Tiffany's. So we did. Even I was amazed by the five-story... More

This is the shopping capital of the world. If you have plenty to spend come shopping here. A must do if you are in New York. We didn't actually buy anything but it was still ace.
