Top ways to experience Fifth Avenue
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Midtown
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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.

    Spans Much of Manhattan
    I was on this important avenue several times during my visit. One day I visited the Museum of the City of New York way up at 95th St., the northernmost point of Museum Mile, a long stretch of swanky apartment building and amazing museums, all across from gorgeous Central Park. Midtown there are grand hotels and office buildings, also some very upscale shopping. And downtown I was in the northern part of Greenwich Village with NYU. So a lot to see. Once I was in a march and had the good fortune to walk down the center of the Avenue enjoying the splendid architecture.

    Every city has one but Fifth Avenue in NYC is iconic.
    Every city has one, wide streets, designer names but nothing is more iconic than Fifth Avenue. Even if you can't afford it then just walk and browse. Best is to start from Central Park and walk up.

    Fifth Avenue
    Fifth Avenue is probably the most famous of New York's streets. Most expensive shops and the most of whatever people wish to make it! It is a great street It may have its beautiful parts, but it also has its not so great parts too.

    The Road In That Song
    Sting did a song called "Englishman in New York" which I believe is about Quentin Crisp. In the song he talks about walking down 5th Avenue so I was keen to check it out. The road stretches from the Upper East Side south through Midtown and onwards. There are a few swanky shops on the road including Bloomingdales and Saks. There is also St Patrick's Cathedral and Rockerfeller Plaza. Worth checking out on your visit to the city.

    New York's Upscale Shopping Street
    If you could walk down only one street in Manhattan, Fifth Avenue is arguably the most interesting one you will find especially between 34th and 59th Street. Beginning at 34th Street, you will find the Empire State Building. As you walk north, you will pass by or near the New York Public Library and Bryant Park, Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building, St Patrick's Cathedral, Rockefeller Center and end at Central Park. Fifth Avenue is also New York's shopping street where you will find all the high-end retailers such as Sak's Fifth Avenue, Tiffany's and Gucci to name just a few.

    One of the best hotel
    Most friendly and helpful receptionist and staff ever, I had lovely and great first impression of the hotel. Everything about the hotel was exceptional. It was clean, stylish, roomy with excellent service in where we had dinner. Food was good and great value for money and service was attentive and efficient. This was truly a place where you didn't need to leave the hotel.

    Always New Yet Still the Same
    Every time I walk down 5th Avenue, there's something new to see. This visit I was lucky enough to see the Fifth Avenue Blooms presentation of colorful floral sculpture offerings. The new Tiffany's looks splendid while St. Patrick's and Atlas still hold regal watch over passers by. A must do for anyone visiting. You'll be hooked, same as I was!

We visited Fifth Avenue on 26th December.

As it was the day after Christmas, it was very busy, but that was to be expected. Most of the stores here were designer, do not expect everyday average clothing.

It is especially busy outside the "photo op" places, like Rockefeller Center and Saks. We walked inside some of these, like Trump Tower and St. Patrick's Cathedral, and while the former wasn't anything special, we loved the latter.

Will definitely be coming back if I'm ever in the area.

Whenever I'm in NYC, I always end up wandering down Fifth Avenue for the sheer pleasure of looking at the material excesses on display. Many of the city's (and mayhap the world's) most expensive stores and other properties are located here, and sometimes I like to look at the beautiful architecture. In warmer months, Fifth Avenue is also the frequent location of various parades, so you can stop and do a lot of people-watching as well. Northern Fifth Ave (starting at E 59 St) abuts Central Park, so you'll also have some greenery adding to the beauty of your walk. The topmost part of Fifth Ave is also known as Museum Mile due to the plethora of famous museums (like the Met).

A walk or ride along Fifth Avenue especially during the holidays is a special treat. The Christmas decorations are wonderful. Do check out the holiday light show in front of Saks Fifth Avenue if nothing else. And don’t forget to turn around to see Rockefeller Center and the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. Absolutely eye popping. We actually started out at 59th & Fifth Avenue after a walk through Central Park with a stop to gander at the famous Plaza Hotel(remember Home Alone 2?) and the spectacular holiday windows of Goodman-Bergdorf. Rather than continue walking down Fifth Avenue we took the Fifth Avenue bus down to 46th Streets viewing all the buildings and decorations. We walked a couple of blocks back to Rockefeller Center and to visit Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, the holiday lights at Saks Fifth Avenue, the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree and F.A.O. Schwarz. Unfortunately due to security issues during the holidays the bus doesn’t stop in front of Rockefeller Center as we were told by our bus driver. Fifth Avenye stretches a long way including museum row on the upper east side and lower Manhattan below midtown. Make your choices or see it all.

Fifth Avenue is where all of the high end retailers are located. It is more residential as you head further uptown with very exclusive apartment buildings. St Patrick's Cathedral is located on Fifth Avenue as well. It was crowded for a Sunday afternoon with plenty of pedestrians with shopping bags.

If you like to shop, plan a lot of time in this area. My teenage son was in awe of all the large multi-level stores. This area is expansive and you can shop some, do other activities, and come back and shop some more. Just a 15/20 min walk from Times Square area.
