Every Building on Fifth
Since 1966 Washington Square has served as the terminus for Fifth Avenue’s southbound vehicular traffic
The lowermost section of Fifth Avenue still preserves what Henry James, writing in his novel Washington Square, called “a kind of established repose…a riper, richer, more honorable look.”
FIFTH AVENUE – the name is a byword for luxury and glamour the world over, a symbol of American fashion, culture and elegance. But beyond its reputation for exclusive shopping and residential addresses, Fifth Avenue is a living history of architecture in New York.
