Fifth Avenue in New York

In the United States, in New York City , there is one of the main and most famous avenues in the world, Fifth Avenue , in the heart of Manhattan. It is one of the most expensive and important streets in the world and, of course, in the city. On Fifth Avenue you can find not only the most luxurious signature stores in the world, but also luxury mansions and apartments, some of them with a garage at the door of the house and that goes up, like people, in an elevator . At the end of the 19th century, when the street already had the appearance of being more commercial than residential, the Astoria Hotel was already aiming very high as it is located where the mythical Empire State Building is today, a place where many films have been recorded.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the wealthiest of the city moved to 59th and 96th streets where the Central Park part is located, in buildings created since 1920 by architects such as Rosario Candela and R. Carpenter. A few blocks further, between 88 and 89, is a spectacular building that is totally worthy of a street like this: the Guggenheim Museum , which is also not the only important building on this famous avenue. Here you can also visit the Public Library, Rockefeller Center or the Metropolitan Museum Of Art.

But what is most striking about Fifth Avenue is, without a doubt, its luxurious shops. Among the best are Tiffany & Co , Cartier, Gucci, Louis Vuitton , Chanel … without leaving behind one of the most desired whims around the world: the Apple store , where there is a spectacular 10 meter wide cube that leads to a store Completely underground and where you can find all kinds of virguerías that have to do with the bitten manzanita. Of course, you can stop to eat at one of the typical hot dog stands, every tourist should eat one!
