IMHO some of the other options in the OP are not in the same league as Champs Elysées, or even Fifth Avenue

I think those pictures were taken during the Asian Games 2010. I don't believe those buildings are lit up like that under normal circumstances.

Champs Elysees are great, I love them, but IMHO it's too wide, so you can't appreciate correctly both sides of the avenue.

Some Gran Vía of Madrid pics:

Best one is Paseo de la Reforma, followed closely by Champs Élisés, 5th avenue in NY is sure important but is not really beautyfull...

fantastic photos!

to me
- Passeig de Gràcia
- Champs Elysées
- Gran Vía

About Avenue 9 de Julio in Buenos Aires, it's a fantastic avenue, but Avenue De Mayo has too much more history and architecture, hope you can walk it some day to really feel it.

Champ Elysees is the best for sure. I've been there; I've walked it and I've driven it.
La Avenida 9 de Julio is a pretty easy second place, too.

Honorable mention to Fifth Avenue (NYC), Michigan Avenue (Chicago), and the "Avenue of the Dead" in Teotihuacan.

Tree lined Collins St, Melbourne Australia, our nicest city street. Pic by Grollo It is home to World famous shops,Five star hotels, Corporate offices, Restaurants, cafes, Bars, Theatre, with small arcades and laneways offering a new adventure at every metre ! Many beautiful avenues are lovely to look at but this street is so vibrantly alive and beautiful at the same time.

How can I not love Champs Elisees (Paris), Passeig de Gracia (Barcelona), Gran Via (Madrid), plus Calle de Alcalà, Paseo del Prado and Paseo de Recoletos (also in Madrid), and of course Paseo de la Reforma (Mexico City)?

BTW, great thread!

Paseo de la Reforma
Al Poniente


Al Centro


Al Oriente


Y un panorama de reforma centro, su paso por Chapultepec y su camino hacia Las Lomas
