Madison Avenue – above east 82nd Street
Some people walk from the Metropolitan Museum up to the Guggenheim Museum along 5th Avenue. Unless you want to look into Central Park or going to the Guggenheim, I don’t find this walk very interesting. I prefer walking up Madison Avenue. Here you will pass many high-end fashions displayed in shop windows. Also, some of the architecture is “old New York” and enjoyable to the eye.
Walking from east 86th Street all the way up to east 92nd Street you will have the opportunity to grab a coffee or lunch. There are several small places and remember you are in NYC, so the price may be a little higher than home so just go “with the flow“.
A reminder to go to the bathroom before leaving the museum or restaurant… public ones are few and far between in this area.
