Fashion Av

Seventh Avenue, known as Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard north of Central Park, is a thoroughfare on the West Side of the boroughof Manhattan in New York City. It is southbound below Central Park and a two-way street north of the park.

 

Running through the Garment District (which stretches from 12th Avenue to 5th Avenue and 34th Street to 39th Street), it is referred to as Fashion Avenue due to its role as a center of the garment and fashion industry and the famed fashion designers who established New York as a world fashion capital. The first, temporary signs designating the section of Seventh Avenue as "Fashion Avenue" were dual-posted in 1972, with permanent signs added over the ensuing years.

 

Seventh Avenue intersects with Broadway and 42nd Street at Times Square.

You paint a great picture in my mind. I have ventured north o Central park just once on a Greyhound bus tour; it was fascinating. Your image shouts "NEW YORK"!
