Armani Fifth Avenue

Shopping & Shopping Services

0.8 Miles Midtown

Armani/5th Avenue is revealed as a neatly defined and light building completely clad in glass—164 feet long and 45 feet high. Spread over four floors, the store features a retail area of approximately 30,000 square feet of which 5200 is occupied by the Bar and Restaurant. Armani selected the architects Doriana and Massimiliano f*cksas and actively collaborated with them throughout this building, conceived as a single, fluid space brought together by the impact of the vortex of the staircase. The heart of the building is epitomized by the staircase, a structure in rolled calender steel, and clad in plastic material that highlights its exceptional sculptural presence.This fabulous concept store brings together the world of Armani: For signature shopping, there is no better place to start than on the ground floor for Emporio Armani and Giorgio Armani accessories as well as the Emporio Armani collection for women. Down in the basem*nt is the realm of those who favor a casual style of dress: Armani Jeans, EA7—the sports line that includes specialized clothing and equipment, Emporio Armani Underwear and the Swimwear range.The further up the building, the more selective and refined the choice of products become. On the first floor, the cosmetics area beckons, with its ultra-sophisticated range of products with Crema Nera and perfumes, followed by the area dedicated to Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani shoes. From here it is a short hop to Giorgio Armani, Fashion, Classics and Eveningwear, all for women. Following the pathway of the staircase and descending a few steps, the space is dedicated exclusively to the fashion section of the Emporio Armani line for men. On the second floor, Emporio Armani, Giorgio Armani for men and Emporio Armani and Giorgio Armani shoes for men are displayed. This floor also houses Armani/Casa, offering a choice of objets; the space successfully evokes the huge Armani/Casa store in SoHo. Nearby there is a small area dedicated to the delights of Armani/Dolci, the first retail area for this collection of delicacies to open in the USA. On both the first and second level, two specific spaces have been conceived and reserved for a private VIP fitting room. From the Armani/Ristorante on the top floor, a fabulous view can be enjoyed—through an amber-colored filter—down Fifth Avenue, with Central Park in the background. A line of lighting on the ground leads to the entrance to the restaurant, emphasizing the sensuous curve of the wall. A virtual curtain is raised as you pass through it: the show begins, making the customer the star.

Apple Store — Fifth Avenue

Computer Stores

0.9 Miles Midtown East

The city that never sleeps was bound to get an Apple store that never sleeps. The massive underground store open 24/7/365 is marked by a sleek glass cube at the plaza in front of the drab GM building on Fifth Avenue, a dramatic setting that symbolizes the old tech vs. new tech dichotomy. Indeed, the soaring glass cube, each face more than 30 feet, marks new territory for Apple, which before the introduction of its beloved iPod almost went to the brink. Seems intuitive that the Big Apple gets the biggest Apple Store, right?Not only is this the largest Apple Store (with more than 300 employees), its Genius Bar will have almost 100 full-time staff. In fact, with this 45-foot-long combo Genius Bar, iPod Bar and The Studio, we predict New Yorkers of all stripes will abandon Kinko's and instead hang around here to swap ideas as well as work feverishly on projects in the middle of the night.

Tiffany & Co.

Diamonds & Other Precious Stones

0.8 Miles Midtown

Of the sixty-four stores that Tiffany & Co. operate in the United States, no other location—not even all 63 others combined—is as great a cultural landmark as the famous Fifth Avenue flagship store. The company that outfitted jewelry on the Astors, the Vanderbilts, and countless other members of the New York aristocracy over the years, is as famous for its central role in Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast At Tiffany’s as it is for anything else. So much so, in fact, that you’ll generally hear people refer to the store as “Tifanny’s” instead of the proper name. The store still retains its sparsely decorated, tiny display windows and all of the charm that has defined Tiffany’s for the better part of two centuries. While they no longer design and manufacture swords and flags for the Union Army, their selection of jewelry is still second to none and a must-have item for discerning jewelry-lovers around the world.
