Bursting with beautiful, luxurious and high end designer boutiques makes Madison and Fifth Avenue a very dangerous place to spend your afternoon. It's also home to one of my favourite online stores, Saks Fifth Avenue, so I just couldn't wait to go there in real life. I spent what felt like a lifetime wandering down the streets, taking photos of nothing and everything and leaving unattractive smudges from my face and fingertips all over the pretty store windows. Surprisingly I was too busy trying to process the fact that I was finally in New York to even think about buying anything, so I came home without any new purchases but a much happier wallet. Perhaps it was also because I was a little overwhelmed by just how beautiful not only the stores were but the buildings and streets too. But Madison and Fifth Avenue are just a tiny highlight of what's on offer in Midtown Manhattan. To the east you'll find The Empire State Building, The Chrysler Building, St Patrick's Cathedral and Grand Central Terminal, to name a few. To the west you'll find Rockefeller Center, Top Of The Rock, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and Hell's Kitchen, with the magical Times Square sitting in the heart of it all and glittering as much as ever. There really is just too much to see and places to go when you're in New York City, which made me realise I really should have packed better shoes.
