Fifth Avenue–53rd Street) is a station on the IND Queens Boulevard Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 53rd Street in Manhattan, it is served by the E train at all times and the M train weekdays.

This is a two-level station, with the upper level serving trains bound for Lower Manhattan, and the lower level serving trains bound for Queens. A tower is on the south end of the upper platform, which controls the junction west of this station. The north exit leads to Madison Avenue while the south leads to Fifth Avenue. Escalators are used to access the upper platform from the mezzanine. Only stairs connect the lower platform to the upper platform. The upper platform is in a tube design. Due to excessively high traffic volume during rush hours, platform conductors are assigned to assist the train conductor in closing train doors.

The upper platform (trains going Downtown) is about sixty feet below ground level. The lower platform (trains to Queens) is approximately twenty feet below the upper platform, and therefore is about eighty feet below the street. This makes the lower platform one of the deepest in the system.
