If you still do not understand the construction of New York and are afraid to get lost, remember the location of the cardinal points and the simple rule of orientation: the avenue runs along Manhattan, from north to south, and the street - across, from east to west.

Almost all the streets are perpendicular to each other and are named simply by their sequence number. To make everything even easier, let's return to our main character.

Fifth Avenue will not give chances even topographical cretins. It runs across almost all of Manhattan: from Washington Square Park in the Greenwich Village quarter across Midtown, concerns Central Park and Upper East Side, and leads to Harlem River.

In fact, it divides Manhattan in half.

Accordingly, all buildings in Manhattan are numbered relative to the central 5th Ave. Take for example the 116th street or street. At the intersection of 116th Street and Fifth Avenue, a separation occurs: the right side of 116th Street becomes Eastern (116th East Street), and the left side - Western (116th West Street). And the closer to this intersection are located houses on both sides of the 116th street, the smaller their number. The nearest house to Fifth Avenue will be number 1.

Fifth Avenue - the famous street in New York - American Butler

Filling

Fifth Avenue is famous largely due to its "tenants". The very first and most significant of these was the Astoria Hotel, built in 1893. Interest in America at that time was huge - literally crowds of wealthy people stayed at the hotel. New Yorkers quickly realized where the golden dog was buried, and began to locate shops and restaurants at a breakneck pace. From this point on, the old residential districts began to turn into an elite commercial zone, which it still is.

  • Museum mile

The section from 82nd to 110th Street is called the Museum Mile, although in reality this segment is much longer. The name is more than justified - there are 11 famous museums in this area, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum of Modern Art, the National Academy of Design, the International Center for Photography and other important cultural objects.

  • Boutique area

The 36-60th Street section is a recognized shopping paradise. Here are located stores of all self-respecting fashion brands. Despite the pile of skyscrapers around, the stock exchanges and the headquarters of multinational corporations, this is where the wallet of All New York is located.

As a rule, the widest choice of goods is presented in these stores, even if the brand originates from another country and leaves the official representative office there. In this segment of 5th Avenue, you can buy goods from Apple, Cartier, Chanel, Armani, Gucci, Christian Dior, Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, Harry Winston and other luxury manufacturers, anything - if only you had the money and the desire to accept compliments from sellers.

Sights

At the crossroads of Fifth Avenue are many attractions. And there is a variety from skyscrapers to churches. Right in that order.

On the avenue there are two, perhaps, major commercial skyscrapers of America - the giant of its era, the Empire State Building and its successor, the Rockefeller Center. Neogothic St. Patrick's Cathedral, striking in its atmosphere, and the Church of St. Thomas are clamped between the skyscrapers. Not far from it stands a massive marble building of the Public Library of New York. A little further away - the Academy of Medicine and the Mount Sinai Hospital, in which the children of almost all Russian celebrities were born, who had enough money for it. On the one hand, it is a so-called landmark, and on the other hand, the chambers there are really luxurious.

Although on Fifth Avenue, even a pebble on the road will seem precious - so good. Do you want to walk on the most prestigious street of the world?

American Butler will tell all life hacking for the best shopping, the most interesting cultural leisure and pleasant emotions.
