Most expensive NYC blocks by borough

Fifth Avenue is historically one of the most expensive streets in the whole country. But there's more to New York real estate than just Manhattan. Using data from StreetEasty, we take a look at the most expensive blocks in each borough. The data is from blocks with at least 10 sales since 2005.

5th Avenue is probably a given (although the new "Billionaire's Row" on 57th St. could soon be giving 5th Avenue a run for its money). But what makes 5th Ave. between East 64th and 65th Streets so special? There are only two buildings located on that stretch, and the median sale price for co-ops is $36.18 million. The second-most expensive block is also on 5th Ave., between East 80th and East 81st Streets, where the median sales price is $13.48 million. And the third-most expensive block is also on the same drag, just further uptown: 5th Ave. between East 93rd and 94th Streets.
