6 1/2 Avenue
It’s the most basic of all traffic control signs, but “stop” seems more like a suggestion than a command for driver after driver at stop signs on 51st through 56th streets.
A new avenue is coming to Midtown. Actually, it’s a mini avenue seven blocks long and reserved for pedestrians. And because it’s a “mini” street it’s got a “mini’ name — “6 1/2″ Avenue.
