Our idea of shopping heaven is a world without maps. That’s why Holiday Goddess editors love Fifth Avenue, New York. First – Get the subway to 42nd Street / Fifth Avenue – Bryant Park. Catch any 7, D and F train at any time.
You’ll know you’re in the right place when you see Zara facing you. Is this your first encounter? Wow. Enjoy it.
Keep walking past Zara (in the opposite direction from the New York Public Library lions – if you see them then you’re going the wrong way).
Soon you’ll come across
Saks at 611 Fifth Avenue – the biggest and the best department store in NYC.
Henri Bendel at 712 Fifth Avenue – the store with the best cosmetics department.
Bergdorf Goodman at 754 Fifth Avenue – the store with the most incredible sales.
FAO Schwarz at 767 Fifth Avenue – the legendary children’s superstore.
And that’s the no-map guide to Fifth Avenue classics. Find out more in The Holiday Goddess Handbag Guide.
