Fifth Avenue is a major thoroughfare in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. For over 150 years, Fifth Avenue has hosted many studios and laboratories where artists, scientists and inventors have made it the place to be for both industry and art.
The “most expensive street in the world” moniker changes depending on currency fluctuations and local economic conditions from year to year. One of the most famous shopping streets in America, Fifth Avenue is New York’s premier shopping area, where many top designers have their flagship stores. Cartier, Tiffany, Bergdorf-Goodman, the famous Apple Store Fifth Avenue, and of course Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as many others line this posh avenue. Even non-shoppers can enjoy a walk along Fifth Avenue. The best area runs from approximately the south end of Central Park to the New York Public Library, or more specifically, between 60th Street and 40th Street.
