A Stroll Down 5th Avenue After Dark (Photo of the Day)

At the end of the night, I found myself strolling down 5th Avenue enjoying the storefronts, the building lights and the quietness of the city -- only to find myself falling in love with the city once again.

If you live in New York, 5th avenue is likely one of two places you want to avoid due to the number of tourists wandering the streets, and the other being Time Square. But when the sun goes down and the stores are closed -- the coast is clear! The sidewalks are empty and you can easily enjoy the beauty of the city by walking ten city blocks from The Plaza to Rockefeller Center. There is something very soothing and romantic about walking these ten blocks that it will quickly put a smile to your face.

For locals and tourists, I highly recommend taking a stroll down 5th avenue after dark! or, if you prefer, you can be like Audrey Hepburn in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany's, and visit in the early morning hours, though admittedly not as special as visiting after dark (remember the scene where she hops out of a cab wearing a dress and a tiara admiring the wares in the window at Tiffany's...don't forget to bring coffee and a danish!)

Here are a few photos from my stroll down 5th avenue.

This was an interesting window (enlarged).

This post wouldn't be complete without a photograph of a food cart on 5th Avenue (in front of the Apple Store).
