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.

This is an excellent street to use for walking during the holiday season! There is so many different festive things to see along the way, and it’s on the route to the Empire State Building. There is a lot of different things to do and see along 5th Ave!

Fifth Avenue is infamous and where most of the parades run. St.Patrick’s Cathedral is a beautiful sight as is the Rockefeller Plaza. Long Avenue to explore.

Walking from 34th to 59th along 5th is a must-do experience in NYC. The Empire State Building, public library, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and the famous stores such as Michael Kors, Tiffany's, Bergdorf Goodman, and many others can keep you busy for many hours,

If you are a shopper you are likely to find some treasures. The buildings are interesting and it's a safe area to wander.
