9th Avenue

Today I walked 9th Avenue, about 7 miles.

9th Avenue (or the corridor I'll call 9th Avenue for convenience) begins as Hudson St. at Chambers St. in Tribeca and merges into 9th Avenue at 14th St.  Like the other west side Avenues, 9th Avenue changes names and becomes Columbus Avenue between 59th St. and 110th St. and then turns into Morningside Avenue between 110th St. and 122nd St., where it runs along the bluff overlooking Morningside Park.

While 9th Avenue isn't loaded with famous landmarks or an abnormal number sites of historical interest, it makes a nice cross-section of the city.  Also, the sets used for Upper West Side street scenes in Seinfeld were supposedly modeled after Columbus Avenue.
