Faces to Watch 2013; Flixy Cats Now Paint Park Avenue New York City's fashionable Park Avenue, known for the "Rich & Famous and Flixy Cats?" Max and the Flixy Cats are wowed by Park Avenue, expressed on Max's face, the largest painted mural in NYC
NEW YORK, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Once upon a time in the 1800s, Park Avenue was named Fourth Avenue that once carried the New York Rail Road. As time moved quickly, some of the train tracks were sunk and portions of the boulevard were renamed Park Avenue due to the green, park-like landscape around the railroad tracks.
The building of Grand Central Station in 1927 made it possible for cars to cruise Park and Forth Avenue. By 1956, all of Fourth Avenue, from 17th Street, to the remainder of its distance became known as Park Avenue.
Iconic and historic architecture lines the streets of Park Avenue, the Seventh Regiment Armory, Ritz Tower, Helmsley Building, the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, St. Bartholomew's Church and Grand Central Station. Many movies and television shows have been filmed at Grand Central Station such as Men in Black, Madagascar and Superman.
Flixy Cats were first discovered in an alley in Hollywood, California in 1988, and now are being seen in cities and towns all across the U.S. and around the world.
