Something for the the little kid in everyone here. FAO was something of a New York institution for me...and it was only a few blocks away from our hotel, making it a must see on our list of things to do.
Fith Avenue, World Trade...
Fith Avenue, World Trade Center, Empire State Building, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Broadway, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Battery Park, the possibilities are endless.
You can spend an entire day walking up and down fith avenue, central park, rockefeller center, fao swartz, tiffany's, sacks fifth avenue etc
- Wine Tasting
If you can afford it, go shopping on Fifth Avenue where you'll find many of the top designer name stores. Some of my favorite are the Gucci, Coach, Louis Vuitton and of course Channel.
Diamonds are girls best friends
Sorry not to have any Tiffany's photo but they don't like you take pictures inside, well but Cartier is also important.
- Romantic Travel and Honeymoons
Across the street from St. Patrick’s Cathedral, in 630 Fifth Avenue, you will find one of New York’s most famous statues, the 15 feet bronze ATLAS statue created by Lee Lawrie in 1973.

The Plaza Hotel
Built in 1907, the Plaza is one of the oldest hotels in New York City. It has more than 800 rooms and it's owned by Donald Trump.
Fifth Avenue is an amazing street with a mixture of shops and sites to see.
There are expensive boutiques mixed in with shops selling New York Memorobilia.
Don't bring your wallet....
Take a walk down 5th Avenue, just for the heck of it.
Neo-classical skyscrapers, the Empire State Building, Saks, window shopping...the sidewalks are paved withe gold!!
Sax 5th Avenue
Well, who hasn't heard about this store? I didn't go in because I hate shopping, but I couldn't resist taking a pic of the outside :). It's right next door to St Patrick’s Cathedral.
FAO Schwartz - This toy shop...
FAO Schwartz - This toy shop is really lovely. The guide book said it was very expensive, but I thought some of the prices, especially of the lovely soft cuddly toys were very comparable.
Marvel at what Donald Trump is...
Marvel at what Donald Trump is continuously coming up with - trees growing from one of his many buildings.
Across the street from St....
Across the street from St. Patrick's Cathedral in one direction is Sac's 5th Avenue. The store for the rich. But we walked through it anyway!
You can take a walk down this street and go into stores where things cost more than my university tuition. I'll never buy anything there but it was still fun to take a look around.
