Occupying an entire city block directly across from Rockefeller Center, Saks Fifth Avenue has been one of the city's preeminent high-end department stores since it opened in 1924. The ten-floor luxury behemoth buzzes with a well-heeled hum at the ground level, where cosmetics salespeople stand at attention and perfume spritzers beckon at every turn. Retail extravaganzas can be overwhelming; stop off at the information booth on the 50th street side before ascending to the upper sales floors. Things quiet down considerably at the genteel, elegant in-store boutiques of designers like Chanel, Escada and Louis Vuitton. On the fifth floor, find lower-priced labels like Marc by Marc Jacobs and Juicy Couture, as well as a casual shoe department. Ladies who lunch do so on the 8th floor at Café SFA, a full-service café and bar; the two floors below are devoted entirely to men's fashions, outerwear, suits and shoes.
