Fifth Avenue is a major thoroughfare going through of the borough of Manhattan in New York City, United States.. It stretches from West 142nd Street in Harlem to Washington Square North at Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village.. It is considered among the most expensive and best shopping streets in the world..The first commercial building on 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 near the Empire State Building and the New York Public Library..

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 held on Broadway from the Upper West Side downtown to Herald Square.. 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..

Warburg House, two Morton F. Plant Houses, James B. Duke House and numerous others.. 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..Millionaires' Miles are characterized by the presence of great houses in varying architectural styles.. Depending on the location, these may be stately homes, mansions, townhouses, esoteric modern creations or other imposing designs..This area contains many notable apartment buildings, including 810 Fifth Avenue and the Park Cinq, many of them built in the 1920s by architects such as Rosario Candela and J. E. R. Carpenter. A very few post-World War II structures break the unified limestone frontage, notably the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum..Many airlines established ticketing offices along Fifth Avenue.. In the years leading up to 1992, the number of ticketing offices along Fifth Avenue decreased..
