I’m a poor tourist by Asian standards. Having said so, I must point out that – in spite of my condition (defined by an Indian rickshaw driver), I loved Madison Avenue!
Great flagship stores for window shopping (upscale, luxurious, sophisticated), sidewalk cafes, beautiful architecture which preserves the style and heritage of the Manhattan Upper East Side Historic District. Boutiques of the finest American and European designers, stunning buildings, exquisite restaurants, gorgeous cafés, internationally renowned hotel chains, places for pampering oneself, art galleries, elegant feel. Chic. Charming.
On its website it claims to be the North America’s premier luxury District. I think that is fair.
Parallel to its neighbour, the Fifth Avenue. Less touristy, more exclusive and glamorous, less crowded, more enjoyable.
Even if you don’t have the money, this is the place to go! Remember: everything is a question of attitude!
