Fifth Avenue is perhaps one of the most famous shopping streets in the world. Most people assume that only luxury labels such as Hermes, Gucci, Tiffany, Prada, and others are on this street, but there are also a variety of other recommendable shops to visit. If you ever stroll along 5th Avenue from Central Park and walk along the way downtown, you’ll notice that each section is completely different.
