Rentals and Condo Sales
Fifth Avenue has the most iconic status of all the streets in New York City. Fifth Avenue starts from Washington Square in Greenwich Village all the way to Harlem and divides Manhattan’s East/West streets. It is representative of New York’s upper crust, having been rated as the most expensive shopping street in the world!
But Fifth Avenue is not only a shopping street. Along Central Park, it becomes more residential and you will find luxury homes, historic buildings, grand churches and a lot of museums such as the National Academy Museum.
Fifth Avenue from 142nd Street to 135th Street is a two-way portion and it carries a one-way traffic south of 135th. Fifth Avenue is also the traditional avenue where the most celebratory parades march up. Thus, it is closed to traffic on numerous Sundays in warm weather.
