Pedestrian Bridge, East 142nd Street

As Manhattan Island tapers northward, Madison Avenue follows the contours of its shoreline to terminate at Fifth Avenue and 142nd Street, the only instance of two north/south avenues meeting.  At the intersection, the east side of the Fifth Avenue sidewalk also terminates with a pedestrian bridge that leads across the FDR Expressway and to the Harlem River bike trail, which loops from here down to 135th Street and Madison.
