Carnegie Hill Neighborhood Guide
Located on the fashionable Upper East Side, Carnegie Hill offers a small town feel in the middle of bustling Manhattan. Local activists work hard to preserve the village-like vibe and have succeeded in creating an historic district and preventing new high rises from being built. It's known as a quiet, well-maintained, and sophisticated neighborhood with historic avenues, numerous museums, and is within close proximity to Central Park. The Andrew Carnegie Mansion, which is responsible for this neighborhood's name, is nestled amongst open streets, old storefronts, and young trees.
Architecture and landmarks
The Andrew and Louise Carnegie Mansion, now known as the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, is the most recognizable landmark in the neighborhood but there are plenty of others: The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, which was designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Virginia Graham Fair Vanderbilt House, and the Russian Orthodox Church.The architecture in this neighborhood is made up of brick and brownstone town houses, early flat buildings, apartment homes, and freestanding mansions, and the vast majority of all residential buildings were completed between the 1870s and the 1930s.
Commuting to Midtown or lower Manhattan via subway is simple, thanks to the Number 6 station at East 96th Street and the East 86th Street station's access to Numbers 4, 5, and 6. Several buses and express buses also run throughout the neighborhood.
The abundance of scholarly options is one of the big draws for families who move to Carnegie Hill.
