... walking along 5th Avenue examining all the tall apartment buildings, where it probably costs a fortune to live, overlooking Central Park. A few of the ground floors bore brass plaques of doctors or dentists. Many of them have green shelter walk-ways from kerb to front door, with the building number on the side. See photo.
