Fifth Avenue: The #1 Destination in NY and Most Iconic Street in the World with Jerome Barth, President, Fifth Avenue Association

As we continue speaking to key leaders across Manhattan who are working hard on their neighborhood’s  economic recovery from Covid, we land on Fifth Avenue,  which remains the most iconic thoroughfares in the world.  Fifth Avenue is known for its flagship retail, five-star hotels, gourmet restaurants,  renowned cultural institutions and landmark attractions in the heart of Midtown, between 46th and 61st Street.

This year for the first time, Fifth Avenue (608 Fifth Avenue), will be a host to NYC’s semi-annual fashion week (NYFW) from September 8th through 12th, which generates $887 million in total economic impact annually.

Josh Schneps, CEO, Schneps Media talks to Jerome Barth, the President of the Fifth Avenue Association, about the upcoming fashion week events,  Netflix’s takeover of the iconic Paris Theater and how the stores will gear up on the street for the holiday season.
