Park Avenue Malls (59th Street)
The third of three Park Avenue Malls, this section begins just across 59th Street from the second section, but it was completed two years later. It is the longest section, stretching from 59th to 97th Street, adding a bit of green between the north and south-bound lanes of Park Avenue. At the northernmost tip of the malls, train tracks re-emerge between Park Avenue that take trains north out of Grand Central Terminal. View the other sections of the park at 34th Street and 46th Street. In a unique partnership, the Fund for Park Avenue maintains the public malls, arranging spring plantings, sculpture installations, and a display of lighted Christmas trees.
