Lexington Avenue is an avenue on the East Side of Manhattan. It is named for the 1775 Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battle of the American Revolutionary War. Along its 5.5 mile, Lexington Avenue runs through Harlem, Carnegie Hill, the Upper East Side, Midtown, and Murray Hill. Parallel to Lexington Avenue lies Park Avenue to its west and Third Avenue to its east. Its roster of great, older architecturally prestigious buildings is considerable: the Chrysler, 570 Lexington Avenue (the former General Electric Building built in 1931), the New York Marriott Marquis and the back of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. The avenue has long been lined with cheap stores and food shops.
