“Good for shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

If you want to see a bunch of flagship stores on one street, this is it. Don't forget to check out FAO Schwarz for the giant piano! It's right behind the Apple Store, which you should check out too.

“Great Shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Fifth Avenue is the perfect place to shop and/or window shop. A bit on the high-end side, there are tons of great stores with lots of merchandise and helpful clerks. And if shopping is not your thing, it is a great place to people-watch
