    VIBE

    On a select strip of Fifth Avenue, life is a fashion show and the sidewalk is the runway, where well-heeled shoppers chat, stroll, and artfully dodge throngs of staring tourists. The buzz on the street is pulsating, the horns from the cabs are piercing, and the boutiques ever-so glitzy.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    It’s a classic New York experience complete with crowded sidewalks, noisy street vendors, and beautiful architecture. Obviously the glam shopping is not to be missed, but the buzz on the streets is what makes the experience unique.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    There’s a little something for everyone, from designer boutiques like Gucci, Cartier, and Louis Vuitton, to trend-on-the-cheap powerhouses like Zara and H&M. Crowd-pleasing favorites like Abercrombie & Fitch and Banana Republic also have a place here, and if you’re traveling with kids, there’s the NBA Store, FAO Schwarz, and American Girl Place along the way, too. Don’t miss the iconic department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman, or a stroll through the nearby Rockefeller Center.
