First Avenue is a north-south avenue on the East Side of Manhattan, running from Houston Street northbound and terminating into The Bronx. South of Houston Street, the roadway continues as Allen Street south to Canal Street. First Avenue passes through a variety of mostly residential neighborhoods (East Village, Yorkville, Spanish Harlem) and borders the United Nations headquarters. It was proposed as part of the Commissioners' Plan of 1811 for Manhattan. Anton Dvorak lived on this avenue and composed here his famous Symphony No.9, "From the New World" in 1893.
