If you've ever wondered what one of the most extravagant, elegant and expensive streets in the world looked like, then look no further than the 6.2 mile long Fifth Avenue on Manhattan - New York City. Commissioned in 1811, Fifth avenue runs from Washington Square Park in the south (Greenwich Village), to West 143rd street in the north (Harlem). Shopping The length of Fifth Avenue that runs between 49th Street and 60th Street is where people go to visit the some of the most prestigious and luxurious shops in New York. If you can think of a luxury brand, the chances are, they have a boutique here: Armani, Prada, Gucci, Tiffany, Rolex, Omega and Chanel to name a few. Museums While Manhattan may be one of the most densely populated cities in the world, Fifth Avenue can be equally argued to be as densely loaded with culture. A single stretch of Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side, colloquially know as "Museum Mile", contains no less than 9 museums - between 82nd and 110th streets. These museums include the Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Africa Center, the Jewish Museum, El Museo del Barrio, the Museum of the City of New York, the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, National Academy Museum, and Neue Galerie New York. An additional museum lies further south on Fifth Avenue: Henry Clay Frick House. Photo by Josh Wilburne on Unsplash
