19th Street North is one of the primary north-south streets in downtown Birmingham's business district.

19th Street begins at the northern end of 19th Street South, in a tunnel underneath the railroad tracks of the Railroad Reservation. From there it first crosses Morris Avenue and continues north all the way to 16th Avenue North. There are additional sections of the street in North Birmingham from 21st to 37th Avenue North.

The street serves as the eastern boundary of Birmingham's Civil Rights District between 3rd and 8th Avenue North. It also serves as the border of the Fountain Heights and Central City neighborhoods south of 9th Avenue North and Fountain Heights and Druid Hills north of 9th Avenue.

A 1907 train accident occurred at the intersection of 19th Street and 9th Avenue North. A notable early balloon ascent took place near the intersection with 1st Avenue North in 1891. The street is included on the route of the annual Veterans Day parade.
