Sedgwick Avenue is a major street in the Bronx, New York City. It runs parallel to Jerome Avenue, the Major Deegan Expressway, University Avenue. Sedgwick Avenue is one of the longest streets in the western part of the Bronx, running from Mosholu Parkway at the north to Macombs Dam Bridge at its southern end, about 800 feet west of Yankee Stadium. A smaller Sedgwick Avenue continues into Yonkers, north of Van Cortlandt Park and east of the Saw Mill River Parkway. From the early 20th century until the 1970s, Sedgwick Avenue is one of the busiest thoroughfares in the Bronx, having streetcars and train stations. In around 1900, it was a popular road for weekend bicycle tours and military marches to Van Cortlandt Park. From 1918 to 1958, the Sedgwick Avenue elevated station operated at Webster Avenue. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed a bill on February 26, 2016 renaming 42 streets and places in New York City. One of the renamed blocks was a block where 1520 Sedgwick Ave is located, renamed “Hip Hop Boulevard" after DJ Kool Herc who threw a "back to school jam " at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, at that party, hip-hop began.
DJ Kool Herc had moved his parties to Cedar Park, "attracting b-boys and cool kids from across the Bronx 1974." The avenue starts as a northbound service road, running north-south, to Major Deegan Expressway at around the Macombs Dam Bridge. Morris Heights, Bronx is adjacent to this section of the avenue, it becomes two-way at around West Tremont Avenue. Along this stretch, the Putnam Line had a station at Sedgwick Avenue; the NYPD's Strategic Response Group 2 stationhouse is located on Sedgwick Avenue at 169th Street. Sedgwick Avenue remains a primary thoroughfare through Kingsbridge Heights; the Sedgwick Avenue station was a train station on the abandoned section of the IRT Ninth Avenue Line from 1918 until 1958. The New York City Housing Authority has a number of large apartment complexes along the avenue; the avenue turns east, runs near the west and north sides of the Jerome Park Reservoir.

Sidgwick Avenue is a road located in western Cambridge, England. The avenue links Grange Road to the west with Queen's Road to the east; the line of the road continues northeast into central Cambridge as Silver Street. Sidgwick Avenue is flanked by Newnham College, Ridley Hall, Selwyn College, the Sidgwick Site of the University of Cambridge; the majority of the southern side of the avenue is occupied by Newnham College with Ridley Hall, a theological college affiliated with the University, to the east. The Sidgwick Site, home to university faculties including Law, History and Politics, occupies much of the northern side of the road. Lady Mitchell Hall, the Museum of Classical Archaeology, the Marshall Library of Economics are located in the Sidgwick Site. To the west is the main part of Selwyn College and east of the Sidgwick site is the Harvey Court site of Gonville and Caius College; the avenue is quite narrow and recent proposals have considered turning it into a pedestrian thoroughfare with carve outs for cycle lanes.
The origins of the Sidgwick Avenue are somewhat unclear, however remains from the Roman period have been found near the area near Selwyn and Newnham Colleges, suggesting some early human settlement and use of the area. The avenue was used under different names in the medieval and Tudor periods, with only sections of it near the City of Cambridge being paved with cobblestones. In the 19th century, the avenue became important and it was paved with cobbles and paving stones, some of which can be seen today. With the growth of Cambridge colleges during the 19th century, including Selwyn and Newnham, the avenue became more busy. Today, Sidgwick Avenue has become quite developed and serves as a link between the City of Cambridge and several colleges. According to the University of Cambridge, Sidgwick Avenue is named after Eleanor Sidgwick; the early progress of women's rights at Cambridge University owes much to Henry Sidgwick, a Philosophy fellow of Trinity College who championed the cause throughout his life.
In 1871, with Anne Clough, the first Principal of Newnham College, Eleanor Balfour, Sidgwick oversaw the purchase of a house for five female students who wished to attend lectures but did not live near enough to the University to do so. The avenue was envisioned as home for several colleges of the university and as a cross-town route to connect the area. In 1875, the first building was built on Sidgwick Avenue site of Newnham College, now called Old Hall. In 1882, the Old Court of Selwyn College was built on the other side of Sidgwick Avenue
