Lots of clothing and jewelry, but it was over priced and most of it was not unusual or inventive. I am not a member of the herd and had hoped to find unusual jewelry and clothing that was both pretty and functional. I found the same designs in many of the shops and got tired of not seeing anything new.

I have been in NYC over 5 times now, and still I am amazed when walking over 5th Avenue.
And most of the times we had hotels around the corner (e.g. JW Marriott and Sofitel).
It's just as in the movies. The sounds, the view and the street. The shops are a combination of high street and flagship stores and you find a lot of tourists walking by. Still it is like in the movies and gives you the NY feeling.

How much hype can one street get?? I was very much looking forward to strolling down Fifth Avenue and taking in the shops and the spectacle over the Christmas and New Years holidays....I was sooooooooo disappointed! :-(

Disappointed does not come close but as I am unlikely to ever get to shop at some of these places the disappointment doesn't last long!

Agree with previous review this to me was a let down and more a site seeing experience than shopping.

Not really impressed after hearing so much hype about fifth avenue. Would say it is more of a site seeing experience than a shopping experience.
