Fifth Avenue

Late afternoon, looking North on Fifth Avenue.
This is a very prestigious address for the buildings you see in the sun
with a beautiful view on Central park
On the other side, looking south,
Fifth avenue goes down to Washington square
with its arch modeled after the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Fin d'apres midi, en regardant vers le Nord sur la 5eme Avenue.
Les immeubles que l'on voit au soleil ont une adresse tres prestigieuse
et une vue superbe et degagée sur Central Park.
En regardant vers le sud, la 5eme Avenue descend jusqu'a Washington Square
avec, en son milieu, une arche inspirée de l'Arc de Triomphe Parisien.


And to celebrate Bastille Day, July 14th
The recipe for A Manhattan Cocktail:

5cl Rye Whiskey (Bourbon,Canadian)
2cl red vermouth
"Shaken not stirred"...
and a Marashino cherry .

Je vous souhaite un tres bon WE de 14 juillet.

Am I seeing Saks on left in the central photo? and a tower of St. Pat's? The metallic sided building on right, behind the tower--that metal siding always made me curious. that's NYC, filled with the unusual and landmarks.

OH! I see the old Scribner's sign(used to be my fave bookshop!) now it's a Sephora I think--have you gone inside? stunning interior, only it was best for books.

Oh my goodness, just how long is that road? Those facing Central Park are tremendously lucky!

Hi Marie! This month promises to be even more hectic than the already chaotic previous ones! Anyhow,here I am enjoying your blog!
Where did you take these? It looks around 57th, but I can't find out. Have to go back...
To the River Cafe, also... ;)

Nice pictures. I love pictures from a high vantage point. That cocktail looks fabulous. Speaking of an alcoholic theme, have you visited Isadora in Budapest today, she is wine tasting in Solt.

Bon week end du 14 juillet, sur la pointe bretonne il sera encore plus maritime qu'à l'accoutumée ...

Peut-être étais-tu toi-même à un cocktail pour fêter le 14 juillet avec un peu d'avance?
Ils ont oublié la cerise...

These are wonderful cityscapes. Really feel on top of the world.

M-N, you forgot to include "gently place stemmed cocktail glass on window ledge overlooking the Big Apple" in your recipe :)

Thanks for your visits and comments!

Faboulous photos of the 5th!! ... but where is the cherry?

Nathalie July 14, 2008 at 6:23 PM  

The cherry, Peter ? I had it!

Bravo pour cette double perspective sur la 5ème avenue, toujours aussi impressionnante.

quand on parle de Grand Canyon pour les rues de Manhattan, ta photo en est la preuve. Superbe vue et merci pour le cocktail de fin de journée.

Fameuse Arche où fut turnée une scène de Quand Harry rentre Sally.
He oui, Marie Noyale n'étant allée à New York que pour quelques jours mes references sont principalment cinématographique. Qui aime New York te suive, ou suive Woody Allen.

Il y a aussi..There is also...
