Out & About: Waldemarstrasse on 53rd
More than two-decades after the Berlin Wall collapsed and crumbled into history and its lesson books, pieces of it remain scattered across the globe reminding its passersby of how fickle the world can be. Three segments of the Wall reside in New York City, and one of them happens to be just a few paces from our corner on Fifth Avenue. Originally located on Waldemarstrasse, this portion now finds itself on the north side of 53rd street between Madison and Fifth Avenues and features the art of Thierry Noir and Kiddy Citny. While a bit unexpected, this quiet shady spot is a lovely place to sit, read a book and consider how swiftly the world can change.
Walk down Fifth Avenue and take a left on 53rd Street. Stay on the north side of the street. The space is half-way between Fifth and Madison Avenues.
