Neighborhood Spotlight: Carnegie Hill
Carnegie Hill is a small section of the Upper East Side with a history of rich culture, architecture, and residents. Home to Museum mile, world-renowned museums such as the MET and the Guggenheim set the standard for the luxurious history and feel of the 12 x 4 block neighborhood. Named after the mansion that Andrew Carnegie built on 91st Street and 5th Avenue (which is now the Cooper Hewitt Museum), other wealthy residents followed suit and their lifestyle survives through the apartments available in the area -- today, Carnegie Hill is full of white-glove co-ops and grand brownstones with beautifully manicured stoops that line the park and surrounding streets. Here are some of the Team’s top picks in the neighborhood for fine dining and museum visits among other can’t-miss stops in the neighborhood.
