The Promenade

There are streets in New York that are for business, or shopping, or eating, or simply for getting from one place to another. Then there are streets that are for seeing and being seen, for showing that you’ve arrived, and where you’re going.

Gillian Williams of Brooklyn Heights.  



ST. MARKS PLACE
Capital of youthful disaffection, and the place where many young New Yorkers begin to grow up.













Elizabeth Pollock of the Upper East Side.  



MADISON AVENUE
On Madison Avenue above 60th Street, the stores and boutiques draw an audience from all over the world— and the rich let their freak flag fly.












Harry Dover and Ella Cunningham of the Bronx.  



125th STREET
Home of the Apollo, main drag of Harlem and of black America. As such, style starts here— and returns in the chain stores that have arrived in the last ten years.
