1900 block of 2nd Avenue North in 2006. The Old Kress Building is prominent.

2nd Avenue North (Downtown) is the section of 2nd Avenue North running through downtown Birmingham's Fountain Heights and Central City neighborhoods, between I-65 and 26th Streets.

In the downtown area, 2nd Avenue North has an 80-foot right of way. It is a one-way street which carries three lanes of westbound traffic, with parallel parking at each curb.

The area surrounding 2nd and 3rd Avenue North near the Alabama and Lyric Theatres is considered the heart of Birmingham's Theater District. The section between 22nd and 25th Streets is part of the City Center Loft District, utilized for the annual ArtWalk festival.

The section of 2nd Avenue between 20th and 24th Street is part of the Downtown Birmingham Historic District. Until the mid-1980s, Red Mountain Expressway terminated at the 2nd Avenue North offramp. During that decade rows of Gingko trees were installed along 2nd Avenue as part of the city's urban tree planting project, guided by Nimrod Long & Associates. In general, female trees were planted on the north side of the street and males on the south side.
