5th Avenue

Vacation Travel Guide
5th Avenue which includes signage

Go shopping, see art and stroll beside Central Park on this famous Midtown street.

Regularly referred to as the most expensive street in the world, Manhattan’s 5th Avenue runs down the center of Midtown Manhattan. Between 49th and 60th streets, 5th Avenue plays host to many of the world’s most prestigious retail outlets, and is a destination for shoppers from around the world. While it’s best known for its shopping, tourists wanting to see the sights visit the street more than shoppers, and there are a number of attractions on the street.

Make your way along the street to take in the landmarks of the area. Join a walking tour for explanations of the sites you are passing; however, as 5th avenue is just one street, it is easily navigated on your own. The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission has designated a number of the buildings on 5th Avenue as landmarks, including 500 Fifth Avenue, one of the most iconic buildings in the area. The Gorham Building at number 390 is known for its Italian-style fittings and ornate balconies.

Visit some of the major cultural institutions in New York between 82nd and 105th streets, the section known as Museum Mile. Here, visitors can discover the history of the city at the Museum of the City of New York and the Jewish Museum, see some of the world’s most famous works of art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum, or visit the Goethe Institut, a German cultural center.

Fifth Avenue runs from Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village, through Midtown and the Upper East Side before stopping at 120th street. The street is well served by the subway at all points, and visitors can easily walk sections of the street. Fifth Avenue can be visited daily, and there is no fee; however, many of the attractions along the way are subject to an entry fee.

"Check-in was easy. The rooms are small, but we weren't planning on spending lots of time there. The place is a bit run down and dirty, especially the bathrooms.

"The key with managing your expectations of this property is to compare the price that you book it. I think my husband and I would’ve been quite disappointed if we spent $300 a night to stay here, but because it was much lower than that, our expectations were met. The room was in need of some freshening ..."
