Navigating Manhattan streets in Manhattan are located mostly in the form of grid up to Greenwich Village, which facilitates pedestrian navigation. 5Th Avenue located the Meridian between the East and West of the island, and the beginning of the numbers of buildings in both directions. For example, the address 100 47 Street is one block from 5th Avenue eastbound, and the 100 W 47th Street one block in the opposite direction. Street numbers are higher towards the North of the city and avenues numbers begin on the East River and increase in direction to the Hudson. Between the 5th and 3rd Avenue avenues of Madison, Park and Lexington, are making it a little confusing when looking for an address in the East.
