Fifth Avenue ShoppingNew York has no shortage of places where you can spend your money, but one of the most famous strips of retail fantasies runs along Fifth Avenue, starting at Saks Fifth Avenue at 48th Street (across the street is the southern end of Rockefeller Center) and continuing up to 59th Street (and the lower end of Central Park). Along the way you'll pass a number of high-end boutiques and department stores—Michael Kors, Henri Bendel, and Bergdorf Goodman. If you want to stop at Tiffany's, whether for a breakfast gazing at its display windows à la Audrey Hepburn or to pick up a pricey souvenir of your New York trip, it is at 57th and Fifth. There are also budget-friendlier emporiums along the way: Uniqlo, Abercrombie & Fitch, and American Eagle all have outposts here. It is perhaps fitting that one of the most prominent sites—at the northern end of this section of Fifth Avenue, facing the Plaza Hotel—is now occupied by a flagship Apple store.
