That's been reworked as a 5 lane avenue from 6 lanes. Is 6 lanes typical of Manhattan avenues? The width there seems to be much wider than here where 4 lanes and a narrower sidewalk is standard.

Thank you! I knew it was a rare angle the minute I saw it. I had actually never seen quite a perspective of midtown.

+1. I love Tokyo to death. It's like a different planet. And Mt. Fuji in the background makes it so cinematic.

For the major ones yes. Lex and Madison are smaller. 11th is one lane bigger. Miscellaneous avenues like A through D are usually smaller.

But otherwise yeah, the avenues were designed super wide. That's why they're perfect for adding separated bike lanes, which they've done on a few. Parts of Broadway have been reduced from 3 driving lanes to only 1, for example.

The rest of New York is generally more like Toronto, w/ narrower sidewalks, 3/4 lane avenues.
