Holidays Sightseeing in Manhattan: Walking Down Fifth Avenue

Holidays in Manhattan: Walking Down Fifth Avenue

Fifth Avenue is one of the must see attractions during the Holidays in New York City. 

The Fifth Avenue corridor from 59th Street down to 42nd Street would be the most popular stretch and give you the most sites to see in the shortest distance.

The retailers along this stretch take Christmas decorations very seriously and do an amazing job decorating the facades of their buildings and putting together window displays that are a Must See Holiday Attraction in Manhattan.

Notable window displays include Bergdorf Goodman, Barney's(Madison Avenue and 61st St), Lord and Taylor's just to name a few. 

Also along this stretch of Fifth Avenue is Rockefeller Center with the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, an absolute must see for anybody coming to Manhattan for the Holidays.

Fifth Avenue will be very busy, so expect lots of people doing the same thing you are doing, but it's worth the hustle and commotion to see this stretch of world famous Fifth Avenue during the holiday season.

Whether you see the decorations during the day or at night with everything lit up, you will be happy you made the trip to see Fifth Avenue Christmas Decorations.

Here are a few pictures of some of my favorite Fifth Avenue Holiday Decorations for 2012:

I will bookmark this post and go to NY next year as I do not have plans to go during the holidays this year. I have been to Rockefeller center at Christmas but not walked down 5th avenue.

Thanks for the walk down Memory Lane.  I lived in Manhattan for 10 years and miss it every day.  Not only is it the BEST at Christmastime, but every day!

Morgan, That specific stretch of 5 TH avenue is fun to walk up and down whether it is Christmas or the middle of July. All kinds of sight and sounds in NYC all year long. Good pictures posted by you.

Morgan, its been a while since I was last in Manhattan, but your photos remind me of the fun I always had.  My wife leased a condo just two blocks from the Empire State what a view!

Morgan, absolutely beautiful. I've never been to NYC during the holidays but I think it just made it on my bucket list. My favorite decoration is the third photo, I see what store it is, I'm not surprised...
