Thirteenth Avenue. (M19-M20) In 1837 the Common Council approved the establishment of Thirteenth Avenue as the permanent exterior street along the Hudson River from Hammond Street (now West 11th Street) to West 135th Street. It also approved the westward extension of all of the intervening crosstown streets to meet the new avenue. Since nearly all of Thirteenth Avenue was underwater at the time, this ambitious scheme would have required massive amounts of landfill. Only parts of it were ever carried out. Beginning in the 1850s, the Greenwich Village shoreline was pushed out to Thirteenth Avenue between the present West 11th Street and 14th Street. Because of the peculiar street layout in the West Village, this was actually a distance of ten blocks. Part of the Chelsea shoreline was also extended out to Thirteenth Avenue. A generation later most of this landfill was removed to create longer piers (see Chelsea Improvements.) Thirteenth Avenue remained only between Bloomfield and Gansevoort Streets in the West Washington Market (2) and, north of the Chelsea Piers, from 22nd to 30th Streets. This northerly stretch became part of Twelfth Avenue in 1942. The part in the market area was closed about 1950.

Tin Pan Alley. (L19-E20) Originally a nickname for the block of West 28th Street between Fifth Avenue and Broadway, where many music publishers had their offices from the 1890s to the 1950s. By the time these publishers all migrated uptown, Tin Pan Alley had become a shorthand term for the popular music industry.
