It’s one of the most iconic streets in all of the world and its right here in our city. People come from everywhere to walk on Fifth Avenue. Whether its for the shops, the park or the sights, it draws massive crowds. The amount of people is even more amplified during the Holiday Season and for good reason!There is so much to do and see on Fifth Avenue including the Rockefeller Christmas Tree and the iconically beautiful holiday windows at Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue. All of this and we want more? Of course! It’s New York City! How can we make Fifth Avenue during the Holidays even better? Close it!
For the first time ever, Fifth Avenue will close to vehicular traffic to welcome visitors and provide a one-of-a-kind holiday experience for families, shoppers and sightseers of all ages. Fifth Avenue For All is on Fifth Avenue from 48th to 57th Streets, for three Sundays in December with the last Sunday being this one (December 18th) from 12 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. On these Sundays, the most iconic and spectacular part of Fifth Avenue will be transformed into a pedestrian-only promenade, allowing all who visit to enjoy the iconic holiday windows and celebrate the season with food kiosks, seating areas and live music. Shoppers can also enjoy special promotions during the open street celebration Sundays.
The Fifth Avenue experience is always special during the holidays but with the streets closed, the walk through becomes an event in itself. Street vendors have been added and the energy is high with the amount of people walking through the streets. With more room beyond our sidewalks, you can really take it all in. This Sunday is extra special as the following are taking place:
12:30pm – 1:30pm: Brooklyn United
2:00pm – 2:30pm: Harlem Sings
3:30pm – 4:30pm: Manhattan Samba
It’s an experience you don’t want to miss! For more information, visit fifthavenue.nyc/events/fifth-avenue-for-all
