Fifth Avenue, New York City

4.4
One of the most expensive shopping streets in the world, Fifth Avenue cuts through midtown Manhattan. The prestigious avenue often appears in films as the city's lap of luxury. In fact, the American Planning Association ranked the street as one of the greatest streets to visit in the United States. The street is a dividing line between east and west streets--something to keep in mind when you are looking for a specific address.

  • A long strand of high end stores. Lotsa tourists as well as many locals. I’ve walked and shopped here several times and they always seem busy. People watching at its best. Do that instead of shopping....  more »
  • An avenue to walk slowly and with time; to go quiet visits to those sites which interest us. Crosses from North to South, to the East of Manhattan. It is an artery which passes from the commercial to residential and culturally depending on the area. Busy.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
