Fifth Avenue



Today's picture is from around 1900, and it shows a Stage Coach on Fifth Avenue in New York. The street looks amazingly empty and clean. I am not sure what the building is that they are in front of.

  2. All week I have been fascinated by how high people had to climb to get on board the coaches. Great pictures. Thank you.

  3. I think this location is the Lenox Library at 5th Avenue and 79th Street, which was torn down to make way for the Frick Museum. What a beautiful street 5th Avenue was in those days with all of those magnificent homes!!

  4. This building is the Lenox Library. It was incorporated into the NY Public Library system at some point.
