Madison Avenue

 

Madison Avenue, in Manhattan, runs from Madison Square, at 23rd Street, to 142nd Street, near the 369th Infantry Regiment Memorial in Harlem. Madison Avenue is named after James Madison, the fourth President of the United States.

Madison Avenue was not part of the original Manhattan street grid established in the Commissioners' Plan of 1811. It was constructed south-north, between Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue, in 1836 and it was called Madison Place until about mid-19th century.
