The overall experience was very good. Lots of shops and restaurants with some very friendly staff. Some of the vendors can be a little pushy but overall if you say NO long enough they listen lol

This is a great place to shop for those “needed” souvenirs, t-shirts, and gifts. Restaurants and shops abound. I was surprised how many high end shops and retailers they had also. It was a pleasant walk also.

The walk on fifth avenue at night was a tad creepy this year. Too many people dressed up in costume. Police were EVERYWHERE so you did feel safe walking. Just creepy people.
