What Rodeo Drive is to LA, Fifth Ave is to new York, except that it's 100 times bigger. This is really the prime real estate and more or less the center of the city with expensive shops, malls, restaurants. Fifth Ave is also the home of all major New York street parades (Steuben Parade, St Patrick's Day Parade). Fifth Avenue stretches through the entire city, starting from Washington Square all the way up to Harlem. In the past Fifth Ave was home to the town houses of the rich while today you mainly have really expensive shops there (Tiffany, Cartier). If you have some time, walk down on Fifth Avenue, you will enjoy it as it will lead you past Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, the Museum of Modern Art, Trump Tower, Central Park, as well as the Museum Mile, but there is much more to see. If you are not so much of a heavy walker just walk down Fifth Avenue between 34th and 59th Street.
