A visit to Midtown is incomplete without a stroll down one of the most famous shopping streets in the world. Stretching almost seven miles from Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village to 143rd Street in Harlem, Fifth Avenue is home to the biggest names in retail. However, the area between 49th Street and 60th Street in Midtown is the ideal area to visit with the most exclusive fifth avenue shopping. The Concorde Hotel New York is two and a half blocks from 5th Ave. Its address on 55th St puts you in the perfect location for strolling the most luxurious part of Fifth Avenue shopping. 

Jewelry and Watches

One of the most iconic stores on Fifth Avenue is a jewelry store. Tiffany & Co. first opened its doors in 1940. Since then, the flagship store has been featured in several Hollywood movies, one even having its namesake. The store recently underwent a major renovation, reopening its doors in 2023. Another famous jeweler, Cartier, has called Fifth Avenue home since 1917. The building once stood as a private home. Today, it stands as a lavish example of history and innovation coming together with luxury.
