As you know, Fifth Avenue is a big street in the center of the borough of Manhattan in NYC, US. No doubt, it’s one of the most famous streets around the world but according with Forbes, it’s not so expensive as we could figure out.

Fifth Avenue starts at Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village and it runs northwards through the heart of Midtown and along the eastern side of Central Park. It ends at the Harlem River and cars crosses the river on the Madison Avenue Bridge.

Fifth Avenue, especially between 49th Street and 60th Street, is lined with prestigious shops with windows full of luxury and glamour.

However, the average price per square meter is only $ 28,000. Not very much, because the average price at Pollock’s Path in Hong Kong is $ 120,000 and at Boulevard du Général de Gaulle, Cap Ferrat in France, the average price is 60,000 € ($ 81,950). Precisely, in this last boulevard is where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie live.

More expensive places than Fifth Avenue are also Kensington Palace Gardens in London; Avenue Princess Grace in Monaco; Paterson Hill in Singapore; Chemin de Ruth in Geneva; and Ostozhenka in Moscow.

Then, don’t be worried. If you like to be a neighbor of Bill Murray, you have a chance. Save a little and buy a flat in the Fifth Avenue. It’s up to you!

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere.
