Running through mostly residential neighborhoods, 1st Avenue in New York carries one-way traffic northbound, or uptown. Starting in the south, 1st Avenue runs through the East Village, a trendy area populated mainly by young professionals. It then passes through several urban development projects that are located along what used to be a working industrial waterfront. Between 42nd and 47th, the avenue runs past United Nations Headquarters and is called United Nations Plaza. In this area 1st Avenue has four lanes running underground through the First Avenue tunnel. From here, the road crosses under the Queensboro Bridge and passes through the Upper East Side. Once it reaches 96th Street, 1st Avenue runs through Spanish Harlem. At 127th street, 1st Avenue crosses the Harlem River over the Willis Avenue Bridge, on the other side it terminates, becoming Willis Avenue in the Bronx.
Between 42nd Street and 45th Street, 1st Avenue borders the United Nations Building. The New York Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the Bellevue Hospital Center, and NYU Medical Center occupy the blocks surrounding 1st Avenue; consequently there are a lot of buildings in this area that offer medical and professional office space.
