Park Ave South has a lot of good restaurants so it can be a destination. The rest of Park Ave has some beautiful architecture and fancy prewar apts but nothing to do really. Not tops on any list

We walked around Park Avenue as one of my classmates lived here. It was amazing, re-visiting this place with kids. Once I had bumped into Woody Allen here many years ago. You can see the famous MET Life building from here.

Park avenue has some of the most expensive addresses to live in the world. You will not be able to go into the buildings, but you should walk along the street. You might see someone famous.
