Out of the two streets, which do you think has the best scenery, more busy, better shops, better restaurants, etc.

Fifth Avenue


Bond Street

You pic is not of "prime" Fifth Avenue (i.e., Rock-Center to the park).

The really grand parts are by the Plaza Hotel, Bergdorf's and Central Park. That part of Fifth Avenue is certainly busier than Bond Street. There are not a lot of restaurants on Fifth Avenue proper; the space is too valuable for retail.

The London pic is in fact Regent Street.

With so many crappy buildings with their sides not even painted on Fifth Ave, I would say the scenary is better in London, but overall Fifth Ave wins hands down. The last time I checked, it is still the most expensive street in the world, followed by Causeway Bay Hong Kong.

5th Avenue. NYC comes first in many ways than any cities in the world.

5th Avenue - London is not a "grid" like Manhattan and Bond street is arguably not the nexus for all things impressive to tourists in London.

If the poster had in fact put a picture up of Bond Street I would vote Bond St. Fifth Ave is so so.
