“If you can’t find it on Fifth Avenue, it probably isn’t worth finding”

Fifth Avenue in Manhattan is the home to many expensive shops. “If you can’t find it on Fifth Avenue, it probably isn’t worth finding” is a saying about the famous street.

The Fifth Avenue saying probably originated on the website NYC.com in 2013.

A slogan of Dallas, Texas—“If it can’t be found in Dallas, it can’t be found anywhere in the world”—is somewhat similar.


Wikipedia: Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue is a major thoroughfare in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. It stretches north from Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village to West 143rd Street in Harlem. It is considered one of the most expensive and elegant streets in the world.
