Madison Avenue

The glamorous old address of advertising

Epitomized in the popular drama, "Mad Men," Madison Avenue became one of New York's most prestigious streets after the advertising boom in the 1920's, when scores of advertising agencies concentrated themselves on this street. Though only a few agencies remain, Madison Avenue still exudes an air of unattainability - high-end designers such as Hermes, Christian Louboutin and Miu Miu all have shops on the stretch that passes through the Upper East Side. Madison Avenue also bisects Murray Hill, Midtown, Spanish Harlem and Harlem.
