To some, Fifth Avenue is a no-go zone stuffed with strollers, tourists, and out-of-your-league price tags. But when there's a crowd, there's usually a reason for it, and on Fifth, that reason is the draw of some of the best shops in the city. Every window features an ooh- and aah-worthy display of amazing designer duds just waiting to be snapped up by the perfect shopper. Plus, if you take the time to look at the reflections in the glass, you'll find that the looks that walk down the strip on any given (sunny) day are as chic as the clothing waiting behind the (heavily guarded) doors.
Ready to meet the fine folks on Fifth? Watch our R29 street-style video, in which we quiz stylish pedestrians on what they're wearing, where they're going, and on what items inspire shelling out the big bucks. Take a look, then let us know how you think these uptown styles compare to the wares we stalked across the bridge in Billyburg.
