    Fifth Avenue

    Fifth Avenue

    Wonderful street with lot of upscale stores. Unfortunately, my impression was ruined by lot of street sellers offering fakes for 15 bucks. I really did not expect well developed black market in the heart of Fifth Avenue. What a dissapointment!

    Some of the world's best shopping is on 5th Avenue, with famous stores like Saks, Brooks Brothers, Bulgari, Cartier, Fendi, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Tiffany & Co., and Versace.

    What to buy: You will find all the latest fashions up and down 5th Ave.

    What to pay: Bring your credit card - buy now, pay later.

    Not a "shop" only a "street" with many shops. Fifth Avenue is undoubtably the most recognizable shopping district in the US.

    What to buy: ...What to buy?...You name it and it can be bought.

    What to pay: If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

    Shopping in NYC

    by jaybird199 Written Oct 15, 2002

    If there is one thing New York is known for, then its shopping! The diversity is one of the most appealing things about shopping in NYC. You can shop unpscale along fashionable Fifth or Madison Avenues, or you can go for cheap in Chinatown.

    SHOPPING

    5th Avenue

    It’s certainly the must in New York. I think that NY is one of the best if not the best shopping place in the world. You can get here anything you want but quite often you have to pay a lot. Here are some shopping places that you just can’t miss.
    Department stores such as: MACY'S, BLOOMINGDALE’S, SAKS FIFTH AVENUE provide a diverse and extraordinary range of shopping services. Be sure to allow plenty of time to explore them, because all of them tend to be enormous. Prices are often high, but you can get bargains during sales... Sale is my favourite word when it comes to shopping. Sigh...
    BERGDORF GOODMAN is another department store. Luxurious, very elegant and very, very expensive.
    FIFTH AVENUE is full of department stores and small boutiques ranging from Gap to Gucci. So, it’s something for everybody.
    MADISON AVENUE - This is where you can get the most expensive designer stuff. One next to another there are Donna Karan, Armani, Dolce&Gabbana and many other stores.
    SOHO – on Broadway and West Broadway there are famous brands and designer stores. And all around there are many smaller stores with great stuff. Maybe they are not the first labels from Vogue but still very fashionable and pretty expensive. There are also many contemporary art galleries and antiques here.
