500 Quinta 5ta Avenida Nueva York Zara

This major Spanish apparel retailer, which has stores at Lower 5th Avenue and the Upper West Side (Broadway and 66th Street), launched this prime 12,000 sq. foot 5th Avenue location in late 2008 to take advantage of the heavy 42nd Street foot traffic from both locals and visitors.

At each airy, split-level boutique, shoppers find sculptured blazers, slim trousers, and ethnic-edged pieces like breezy boho-chic tops and safari skirts for women; men can browse through the excellent selection of suiting, dress shirts, and knitwear. While most of the stock tends toward dressier, office-appropriate styles, casual sportswear like shorts, hoodies, and tees, as well as seasonal outerwear, occupies a solid chunk of the selling floor.

Its proximity to Bryant Park means that fashion-conscious Zara customers can shop there after participating in the “Fashion Week” events that are often held there every February and September.
