In New York City, Upper East Side penthouses are in high demand. This is no surprise. The area has a history of housing the wealthy. It is also the cultural hub of the city with its Museum Mile. On the Upper East Side penthouses are cheek to jowl with some of the city’s most exciting neighborhoods. Among the fashionable boutiques, wonderful museums and elegant residences, you will find some of the best shopping in the world. On the Upper East Side, two popular shopping destinations are Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue.

Fifth Avenue

Has any other street in the city the smell of money that is always associated with Fifth Avenue? While Madison Avenue comes close, the street known far and wide as being the center of upscale shopping is Fifth Avenue. For luxury boutiques, you cannot beat this elegant walk through Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Penthouses overlooking the area are regarded with envy by those who would love to shop here every day. Take a stroll though Bergdorf Goodman or Abercrombie & Fitch. Consider the goods offered in the stylish window displays of Prada, Michael Kors and Tiffany and Company.

Madison Avenue

If you are looking for the cream of the cream, the best of the best, head to Madison Avenue. Here you can wander from store to store without reading a single jarring name. Here, you can find the finest products available from such retailers as:

  • Armani
  • Baccarat
  • Barneys
  • Cartier
  • Dolce & Gabbana
  • Gucci
  • Henry Bendel
  • Jimmy Choo
  • Mulberry
  • Prada
  • Ralph Lauren
  • Tiffany’s

The retailers spread before in an endless and almost seamless line of designer showcases.

Yet, for those who are more budget conscious, there are stylish reseal stores that offer up the same brands for surprisingly less. You still get high-end apparel and other items but at a discounted price. The same applies for those who enjoy vintage or gently worn clothing. Madison Avenue has a couple of very high end consignment shops.

If your plan is to purchase or even rent one of the Upper East Side penthouses in New York City, in residences such as Manhattan House, the opportunities for shopping excursions will never disappoint you. Whether it is couturier or high-end designer apparel, Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue have it all.
