This street is in the more upscale classy area of NYC. The 2 days we rolled down this street they had a big area sectioned off and were redirecting people on the streets because they were filming something for Spiderman. We even heard a fake gunshot and saw a bunch of people dressed in suits running. It was very humorous to see. There were a lot of people lined up just to observe the filming. You could see a big production set and cameras. Pretty cool to see.

There are hardly any shops on Park Avenue, but it is great for strolling, seeing the public art, visiting St. Bart's Cathedral, and seeing some classic architecture.

I love wandering Park Avenue from the 80s down to Grand Central. It's always interesting coming across the small international (very ritzy) stores that are scattered along. It's a huge avenue & always amuses me how many yellow taxis you see stacked up on the street when the lights turn red. Makes for a great photo!

When you walk down here for a while when we were recently in the city. I like fifth Avenue a lot better. Park Avenue is very residential, Where fifth Avenue is a lot more commercial and has a lot more shopping. It is nice to see how some of the rich live in New York, however there really is not that much to doon the street.

Want to see how the rich and famous live then walk park Ave. Keep your eyes peeled as you never know who you will see hopping into or out of a limo.
