Often linked to the advertising industry, Madison Avenue in Manhattan’s Upper East Side is also known for its high-end designer shopping, fine dining and opulent goods. Prepare to spend a lot, because shopping here comes at a high price. Designers like Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Betsey Johnson, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Hermes and Gucci all have stores here.
However, the standout store is arguably Barneys New York, the department store that attracts both the traditional Upper East Side residents along with the trendy Downtown fashionistas. The area is sometimes over shadowed by the more popular and touristy Fifth Avenue, but New Yorkers know Madison Avenue is the place for luxury items.
If in need of a break from all the shopping, top attractions such as Central Park, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Frick Collection and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are all just a few blocks away.
