Fifth Avenue was a major thoroughfare in New York City. This avenue intersected with Twenty-third Street. The avenue was located in Manhattan.

In the early-20th century, Fifth Avenue was known as where the wealthy and well-connected congregated in the city. Notable locations on this avenue were the Union League social club, the Metropolitan museum, and the New York Yacht yacht club. Several college clubs were also located on this street.

In The Big Good-Bye, the master criminal Silent Forrester was chauffeured onto this street to his final destination, the posh hotel known as the Plaza. His taxi was being tailed by Detective Jim Tierney and his squad. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

The pages seen in the episode were actually from the detective novel, The Listening Man, by author John A. Moroso. This novel was published in 1924. Information on Fifth Avenue was from page 138.
