Saks Fifth Avenue Flagship
Saks Fifth Avenue occupies a prime piece of NYC real estate; it’s only steps away from St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Rockefeller Center. Due to its art-deco architecture, Saks Fifth Avenue is included on many walking tours of midtown Manhattan. Some seasonal holiday tours also swing by Saks and give you free time to check out the store’s lavish holiday window displays.
Things to Know Before You Go
Saks Fifth Avenue is a must-visit attraction for fashion-conscious travelers.
The department store is home to a café, a French brasserie-style restaurant, a brow bar, a hair salon, and a skin and laser spa.
Saks Fifth Avenue is wheelchair- and stroller-accessible.
How to Get There
Saks Fifth Avenue is situated on Fifth Avenue between 49th and 50th streets. The nearest subway stations are 47–50th Streets Rockefeller Center (B, D, F, and M trains) and Fifth Avenue/53rd Street (E and M trains).
When to Get There
Saks is busiest in the evenings and on weekends—particularly during end-of-season sales in July and late December—and in the run-up to Christmas, when festive shoppers come out in force. Come on a midweek morning for the most peaceful shopping experience.
The Holiday Season at Saks
Saks’ festive displays are legendary; locals and visitors alike flock to the department store to check out the spectacular holiday-themed installations. As well as elaborate window displays, the store hosts a festive light show, which typically takes place every 10 minutes from early evening to late night. The windows and light show are usually unveiled around Thanksgiving and stay in place until the beginning of January.
