Two Beds in Carnegie Hill


Carnegie Hill | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Carnegie Hill is a small neighborhood at the northern tip of the Upper East Side that borders Central Park. It is steeped in history, great wealth, architecture and culture. It is known for its world-class museums and its rows of historic mansions. Nothing much changes here as the entire area is landmarked, preventing the proliferation of high-rise developments. Thus the buildings stay a human scale, the sky is aplenty and the neighborhood kind of feels like a small town to its long time residents.

The name Carnegie Hill is derived from the industrial magnate Andrew Carnegie, when Carnegie decided to build himself a mansion at 91st Street and Fifth Avenue….

Carnegie Hill is a family neighborhood with old fashioned upper crust money. The mid-rise co-ops that line the avenues are among the most prestigious addresses in the city. The avenues are lined with small restaurants, boutique shops

The residential towers that have proliferated on the eastside of Third Avenue in the East 90s simply do not exist between Lexington and Fifth.
