Named after Andrew Carnegie, whose mansion has stood at Fifth Avenue and 91st Street since 1901, Carnegie Hill is the jewel of the Upper East Side, considered one of the most prestigious residential areas in New York City. This sought-after neighborhood is home to museums, historic townhouses, and a quiet environment that is seemingly tucked away from the sometimes hectic pace of New York City.
The Carnegie Mansion today houses the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. Other excellent cultural institutions in the area include the Guggenheim Museum, The Jewish Museum, and the National Academy of Design. Local groups have preserved the neighborhood’s personal and old-fashioned atmosphere ensuring that if you live here, you're living in a true piece of NYC history.
