A trip to NYC is never complete for me with a stop at Saks Fifth Avenue. Whether you have the funds to shop (there are great sales there my friends) or are just a big window shopper, this is a great stop! I love all of the friendly (really they are) make up personnel on the ground level in that... More

We visited New York City many times over the years and always spent some time inside that gorgeous shopping empire ; it is a real experience. Sometimes we were in a hurry and got directly to the target area , other times we wandered among floors and brand's areas but were always happy to be there. Most if not all... More

If you are in NYC any time during the Christmas season, you must go see the Saks light & music show! The light show runs the entire side of the Saks store building and is choreographed to beautiful music blaring loudly on the outdoor speakers. It is straight out from the Rockefeller Centre Christmas tree so you can't miss it.... More

The whole facade is lit up and the Christmas lights blink and flash to the music. It is truly a wonderful Christmas concert of lights. Amazing light show!!! Worth to go see!

I have always visited the stores on Fifth Avenue to see the Christmas decorations. Saks has been showing a light show that is in time to music. It's a wonderful addition to the spectacular sights on Fifth Avenue and in Rockefeller Center. A must see next holiday!

A stone's throw from Rockefeller Center and the lighted Xmas Tree, The outside of Saks offered a exceptional lighted/music display that was incredibly entertaining and sure to be a "holiday" tradition for locals.

Great place to shop for top quality clothing: 2 full floors of men's clothing from sneakers to designer fashions. The once yearly sale is outstanding (usually occurs end of year-begining of year) - you can buy exquisite quality clothing at a fraction of the retail cost - I usually go every year. Classic Art Deco interior - always updated though.... More

I came here for a window shopping experience because I had a couple of hours to kill in the city during the day. The shop assistants were mostly very helpful, and willing to answer any questions I had about the products. There were a few more snotty ones who didn't look like they wanted to help or talk to you,... More

Upon approaching the side of the store I could see the most elaborate window displays. Then I could hear the magical music and see the extreme flashing lights. When I rounded the corner I felt like time stopped. I could have stood there all night watching the fantastic light display. I was immediately brought into the Christmas spirt. Perfection.

The server was very pleasant and polite. We were shopping in Saks so decided to have lunch here on ground floor. It was quite small but very nice ambience. A very good food and drinks menu but a bit limited. We were on a Christmas holiday in New York, therefore five of us for lunch which wasn't expensive for what... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
