Almost any upscale retailer has a prestigious store located at this street. However not all of Fifth Avenue is shopping-centric. Along Central Park Fifth Avenue becomes a more residential street with a large number of interesting museums.
Fifth Avenue starts just north of Washington Square and goes all the way north up to 143rd street in Harlem. It is one of the world's most expensive streets, in particular the area between 49th and 59th Streets where some of the most prestigious stores can be found. There are enough over-the-top shopping opportunities on Fifth Avenue to satisfy everyone's taste.
