Carnegie Hill

Prestigious and Old-fashioned Residential Neighborhood
Named after Andrew Carnegie's mansion, Carnegie Hill is arguably one of the most prestigious and sought after residential areas in New York City. This desirable, Upper East Side neighborhood is home to world-class museums, elite private schools, and historic places of worship. The Museum Mile District along 5th Avenue features the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, and the Jewish Museum. Carnegie Hill is especially appealing to upper-class families due to its top private schools and quiet, tree-lined avenues away from the uber fast pace of Midtown. Madison Avenue is also a stylish destination for fine dining and designer shopping.

Carnegie Hill boasts some of the finest pre-war apartment buildings and townhouses. Local groups have fought against the development of new high-rises, therefore preserving the neighborhood's old-fashioned European architecture and atmosphere. The higher price tag is worth it for those who want an oasis of sunny, open streets, beautiful mansions and apartments, and a more personable environment.
