    In sticking with the original poll, choosing between the midtown avenues only, I have to go with Lex. I especially love the stretch of old hotels in the 40s and of course, the Chrysler. And it is only a mini-avenue and thus narrower, and that helps the canyon effect.

    I love Lexington Ave. in Midtown.

    I only wish its new towers would rise to the occasion. Bloomberg, 610 Lexington, & 519 Lexington aren't very exciting. FYI, 519 Lexington (Lexington House) is the proposed glass hotel with the clock. It will rise directly south of the building with the flags in the image above.

    the three blocks on Gold St south of Fulton.. awesomely tall and narrow!

    That building next to CitiGroup, the Green one, forgot the address...I don't like it.
