"Diamond District" Fifth Avenue Tip by I-Believe-I-Can-Fly

Fifth Avenue, New York City: 58 reviews and 89 photos


The block between Fifth and Sixth Avenues is known as Diamond District where precious gems are traded.

The corner of 57th Street to Fifth Avenue you will find the famous gems store - Tiffany & Co. As said on the novel "Breakfast At Tiffany", the shop keepers and even the door man greet us with courtesy - no matter we shop or not. Also along this street you'll find the luxury stores of Burberrys and Chanel.
