I'd like to know when it is safe to walk on Park Ave.

Why are there certain intersections in Manhattan that do not have "Walk/Don't Walk" signs?

Virtually every intersection in NYC has the Walk/Don't Walk signs which tell pedestrians when it is and when it is not safe to cross. However, there is a stretch of Park Avenue
, roughly between 47th and 58th streets, that do not have these signs. And being that Park Avenue is very wide, it would seem a weird place to omit them. Is it for aesthetic reasons? That section of Park is mostly office buildings and few (if any) ritzy residences that might shun such lights.
Does anyone know why these lights are absent on this section of Park Ave?
