Fifth Avenue is the famous shopping area. It abides several boutiques worth watching but a bit expensive too.
This place is a pure example of rich and aristocratic New York.
West Broadway downtown has more elaborate shopping material but only for those who have extra money in their pockets or have flair to shop.

Apart from the major places to see like Times Square, Rockefeller Centre, Chinatown, Brooklyn Bridge etc there are numerous other attractions within the city which surely prove an extra boon to the tourists.
