Avenue at a Glance:
on the map in the mid-19th century when the aristocratic
Astor family settled into their new mansion on 34th Street,
Fifth Avenue quickly became home to all of New York's upper
home to the Empire
State Building, The New York Public Library, Rockefeller
Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Museum
Mile, and flagship stores of top designers, Fifth Avenue
is a place where visitors can literally spend their entire
stay - and never see it all.
Running up the middle of the island, Fifth Avenue begins
at Washington Square in Greenwich
Village and runs through Midtown,
Park, and through the Upper
East Side and Harlem,
where it terminates at the Harlem River at 142nd Street.
