This is a more professional example of the type of view currently in fashion.
This is what google streetview (always fun!) shows us as we go up 5th Avenue.
Looking back down 5th Avenue from just past 89th Street (again from streetview).
Looking across 5th Avenue. (What’s not to like?) Here, we can see it’s actually not that big.
And finally, the aerial view from 1995. (No pain, no gain.)
