Sixth Avenue - Antique Images

 

Sixth Avenue is a major thoroughfare in Manhattan, sometimes called Avenue of the Americas. It runs northbound from Franklin Street, in TriBeCa, to 59th Street, bordering Central Park. It was commissioned in 1811.

Until the early 20th century, the stretch of Manhattan that lies along Broadway and Sixth Avenue, between 23d and 33d Streets, was at the heart of New York life.

The building with a tower in the distance was the Siegel Cooper Department Store, opened in 1896, then considered to be the largest in the world (vintage post card by Rotograph Co).
