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.)

More To this day, Carnegie Hill feels like a grand village tucked away from some of Gotham’s hustle and bustle. Whether walking on Park Avenue past French and Italian Renaissance apartment buildings with doorman luxury hidden behind their ornate façades, or alongside a street with its well-preserved brownstones, you will realize that Carnegie Hill is a truly special section of the city. Shopping is varied, which makes for gracious Uptown living. Madison Avenue offers all kinds of designer duds, even for babies and toddlers. Many of the local shopkeepers have been here for decades — when you move into your new Carnegie Hill home they will soon learn your name. In keeping with the suburban feel of the area, entertainment is more Museum Mile than rock’n’roll: Carnegie Hill is home to the Guggenheim Museum, the Jewish Museum, and the 92nd Street Y, which offers a variety of arts and cultural programming.
