Uptown on the East Side, from 86th Street to 96th Street and from 3rd Avenue to Central Park.
The Carnegie Hill section of Manhattan, full of magnificent townhouses rarely for sale, has convenient access to Central Park. Larger buildings house prewar apartments of six or seven rooms, known as “Classic Sixes” and “Classic Sevens.” The light in the area remains generous though, as even these magnificent co-ops are usually modest in height. The resulting old-world feel, which influences even modern condos in Carnegie Hill, illustrates why steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie selected this quiet, countrified section of Manhattan as the place to build his ultimate family home. (You can still visit it today on your way to buy or rent an apartment — it’s now a branch of the Smithsonian known as the Cooper-Hewitt museum.)
