Huffer, who is based in the US and a training partner of Olympic finalist Nick Willis, edged out Australian 1500m record holder Gregson 3:53.5 to 3:53.7, in finishing fourth and fifth respectively behind Matthew Centrowitz's winning time of 3:52.4.
The Fifth Avenue Mile runs alongside Central Park in New York and has a net drop of 9 metres.
The performance of Huffer - who was a team mate of Gregson's at the 2008 World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland - is a positive step forward after a number of injury setbacks and comes after running a new personal best over 800m of 1:47.73 in August.
