History[edit] The lower stretch of Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
extended the stylish neighborhood of Washington Square northwards. The high status of Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
was confirmed in 1862, when Caroline Schermerhorn Astor settled on the southwest corner of 34th Street, and the beginning of the end of its reign as a residential street was symbolized by the erection, in 1893, of the Astoria Hotel on the site of her house, later linked to its neighbor as the Waldorf–Astoria Hotel (now the site of the Empire State Building). Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
is the central scene in Edith Wharton's 1920 Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Age of Innocence. The novel describes New York's social elite in the 1870s and provides historical context to Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
and New York's aristocratic families. Originally a narrower thoroughfare, much of Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
south of Central Park
Central Park
was widened in 1908, sacrificing its wide sidewalks to accommodate the increasing traffic. The midtown blocks, now famously commercial, were largely a residential district until the start of the 20th century. The first commercial building on Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
was erected by Benjamin Altman who bought the corner lot on the northeast corner of 34th Street in 1896, and demolished the "Marble Palace" of his arch-rival, A. T. Stewart. In 1906 his department store, B. Altman and Company, occupied the whole of its block front. The result was the creation of a high-end shopping district that attracted fashionable women and the upscale stores that wished to serve them. Lord & Taylor's flagship store is still located on Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
near the Empire State Building
Empire State Building
and the New York Public Library. In the 1920s, traffic towers controlled important intersections from 14th to 59th Streets.

Description[edit] Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
originates at Washington Square Park
Washington Square Park
in Greenwich Village and runs northwards through the heart of Midtown, along the eastern side of Central Park, where it forms the boundary of the Upper East Side and through Harlem, where it terminates at the Harlem
Harlem
River at 142nd Street. Traffic crosses the river on the Madison Avenue
Madison Avenue
Bridge. Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
serves as the dividing line for house numbering and west-east streets in Manhattan, just as Jerome Avenue
Jerome Avenue
does in the Bronx. It separates, for example, East 59th Street from West 59th Street. From this zero point for street addresses, numbers increase in both directions as one moves away from Fifth Avenue, with 1 West 58th Street on the corner at Fifth Avenue, and 300 West 58th Street located three blocks to the west of it. While Fifth Avenue's numbering runs northward, traffic currently runs the opposite direction - southward, or "downtown." The section of Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
that crosses Midtown Manhattan, especially that between 49th Street and 60th Street, is lined with prestigious shops and is consistently ranked among the most expensive shopping streets in the world.[3] The "most expensive street in the world" moniker changes depending on currency fluctuations and local economic conditions from year to year. For several years starting in the mid-1990s, the shopping district between 49th and 57th Streets was ranked as having the world's most expensive retail spaces on a cost per square foot basis.[4] In 2008, Forbes
Forbes
magazine ranked Fifth Avenue as being the most expensive street in the world. Some of the most coveted real estate on Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
are the penthouses perched atop the buildings.[5] The American Planning Association
American Planning Association
(APA) compiled a list of "2012 Great Places in America" and declared Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
to be one of the greatest streets to visit in America. This historic street has many world-renowned museums, businesses and stores, parks, luxury apartments, and historical landmarks that are reminiscent of its history and vision for the future.[6] Historical landmarks[edit] New York City

New York City
Mayor Ed Koch.[9] Traffic pattern[edit] Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
from 142nd Street to 135th Street carries two-way traffic. Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
carries one-way traffic southbound from 135th Street to Washington Square North. The changeover to one-way traffic south of 135th Street took place on January 14, 1966, at which time Madison Avenue
Madison Avenue
was changed to one way uptown (northbound).[10] From 124th Street to 120th Street, Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
is cut off by Marcus Garvey Park, with southbound traffic diverted around the park via Mount Morris Park West. Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
is one of the few major streets in Manhattan

Parade
Parade
route[edit] Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
is the traditional route for many celebratory parades in New York City; thus, it is closed to traffic on numerous Sundays in warm weather. The longest running parade is the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. Parades held are distinct from the ticker-tape parades held on the "Canyon of Heroes" on lower Broadway, and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
Parade
held on Broadway from the Upper West Side downtown to Herald Square. Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
parades usually proceed from south to north, with the exception of the LGBT Pride March, which goes north to south to end in Greenwich Village. The Latino literary classic by New Yorker Giannina Braschi, entitled "Empire of Dreams," takes place on the Puerto Rican Day Parade
Parade
on Fifth Avenue.[12][13] Bicycling route[edit] Bicycling on Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
ranges from segregated with a bike lane south of 23rd Street, to scenic along Central Park, to dangerous through Midtown with very heavy traffic during rush hours.[14] There is no dedicated bike lane along Fifth Avenue. In July 1987, then New York City
New York City
Mayor Edward Koch
Edward Koch
proposed banning bicycling on Fifth, Park, and Madison Avenues during weekdays, but many bicyclists protested and had the ban overturned.[15] When the trial was started on Monday, August 24, 1987 for 90 days to ban bicyclists from these three avenues from 31st Street to 59th Street between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays, mopeds would not be banned.[16] On Monday, August 31, 1987, a state appeals court judge halted the ban for at least a week pending a ruling after opponents against the ban brought a lawsuit.[17] Nicknames[edit] Upper Fifth Avenue/Millionaire's Row[edit] In the late 19th century, the very rich of New York began building mansions along the stretch of Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
between 59th Street and 96th Street, looking onto Central Park. By the early 20th century, this portion of Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
had been nicknamed "Millionaire's Row", with mansions such as the Mrs. William B. Astor House, William A. Clark House, Category:Fifth Avenue, below). Entries to Central Park along this stretch include Inventor's Gate at 72nd Street, which gave access to the park's carriage drives, and Engineers' Gate at 90th Street, used by equestrians. A milestone change for Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
came in 1916, when the grand corner mansion at 72nd Street and Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
that James A. Burden II had erected in 1893 became the first private mansion on Fifth Avenue above 59th Street to be demolished to make way for a grand apartment house. The building at 907 Fifth Avenue
907 Fifth Avenue
began a trend, with its 12 stories around a central court, with two apartments to a floor.[18] Its strong cornice above the fourth floor, just at the eaves height of its neighbors, was intended to soften its presence. In January 1922, the city reacted to complaints about the ongoing replacement of Fifth Avenue's mansions by apartment buildings by restricting the height of future structures to 75 feet (23 m), about half the height of a ten-story apartment building.[19] Architect J. E. R. Carpenter brought suit, and won a verdict overturning the height restriction in 1923. Carpenter argued that "the avenue would be greatly improved in appearance when deluxe apartments would replace the old-style mansions."[19] Led by real estate investors Benjamin Winter, Sr. and Frederick Brown, the old mansions were quickly torn down and replaced with apartment buildings.[20] This area contains many notable apartment buildings, including 810 Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
and the Park Cinq, many of them built in the 1920s by architects such as Rosario Candela
Rosario Candela
and J. E. R. Carpenter. A very few post- World War II
World War II
structures break the unified limestone frontage, notably the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
between 88th and 89th Streets.

Museum Mile[edit] Museum Mile is the name for a section of Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
running from 82nd to 105th streets on the Upper East Side,[21][22] in an area sometimes called Upper Carnegie Hill.[23] The Mile, which contains one of the densest displays of culture in the world, is actually three blocks longer than one mile (1.6 km). Nine museums occupy the length of this section of Fifth Avenue.[24] A ninth museum, the Museum for African Art, joined the ensemble in 2009; its museum at 110th Street, the first new museum constructed on the Mile since the Guggenheim in 1959,[25] opened in late 2012. In addition to other programming, the museums collaborate for the annual Museum Mile Festival to promote the museums and increase visitation.[26] The Museum Mile Festival traditionally takes place here on the second Tuesday in June from 6 – 9 p.m. It was established in 1979 to increase public awareness of its member institutions and promote public support of the arts in New York City.[27] The first festival was held on June 26, 1979 (1979-06-26).[28] The nine museums are open free that evening to the public. Several of the participating museums offer outdoor art activities for children, live music and street performers.[29] During the event, Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
is closed to traffic. Museums on the mile include:

110th Street – Museum for African Art[30] 105th Street – El Museo del Barrio 103rd Street – Museum of the City of New York 92nd Street – The Jewish Museum 91st Street – Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum (part of the Smithsonian Institution) 89th Street – National Academy Museum and School of Fine Arts 88th Street – Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum 86th Street – Neue Galerie New York 82nd Street – The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Additionally, on the corner of Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
and 70th Street lies the Henry Clay Frick House
Henry Clay Frick House
which houses the Frick Collection, though this is not part of Museum Mile. Economy[edit] Between 49th Street and 60th Street, Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
is lined with prestigious boutiques and flagship stores and is consistently ranked among the most expensive shopping streets in the world.[31] Many luxury goods, fashion, and sport brand boutiques are located on Fifth Avenue, including Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co., Gucci, Prada, Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Cartier, Omega, Chanel, Harry Winston, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nike, Escada, Swarovski, Bvlgari, Emilio Pucci, Ermenegildo Zegna, Abercrombie & Fitch, De Beers, Emanuel Ungaro, Gap, Lindt Chocolate Shop, Henri Bendel, NBA Store, Oxxford Clothes, Microsoft Store, Sephora, Zara, and H&M. Luxury department stores include Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue
Saks Fifth Avenue
and Bergdorf Goodman. Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
also is home to New York's fifth most photographed building, the Apple Store. Many airlines at one time had ticketing offices along Fifth Avenue. In the years leading up to 1992, the number of ticketing offices along Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
decreased. Pan American World Airways
