CARNEGIE HILL: A SUNNY AFFLUENT OASIS
by Marcy Sigler, Stribling & Associates, Ltd.
Carnegie Hill made its debut on the Manhattan landscape in 1901 with the appearance of Andrew Carnegie's ornate 65-room neo-Georgian mansion (now the Cooper-Hewitt Museum) on Fifth Avenue and Ninety-First Street. The industrialist's home, built on the highest ground on the Upper East Side (115 feet above sea level) at a cost of $1,500,000 provided "the fresh air and sunshine" prescribed by Carnegie's physician.
Other turn-of-century plutocrats, seeking to escape the noise, traffic and business encroachment of Midtown, followed Carnegie northward on fashionable "Millionaire's Row" by filling the semi-rural high ground with their mansions and elegant side-street townhouses.
The area's side streets were quickly lined by London townhouses and private schools, protecting a truly elite, discreet, quiet and privileged residential lifestyle.
For many decades, developers passed over Carnegie Hill, leaving intact its historical integrity. Surviving are over 100 grand buildingspalaces of the industrialists, bankers, ambassadors and merchantswhich collectively serve with Central Park to give permanence to Manhattan's most coveted commodity: sunlight. Carnegie Hill, a stable residential community between Eighty-Sixth and Ninety-Sixth Streets, Fifth to Third Avenues, is still home to many of New York's prominent families. Devoted to family and privacy, the area with its quiet, tree-lined streets and well-tended brownstones has an abundance of excellent private and public schools.
Catering to the daily needs of the area are the eateries, boutiques and friendly shops (many owned by neighborhood residents) located on Madison and Lexington Avenues. Cozy and welcoming neighborhood restaurants, world-famous museums and the recreational facilities of Central Park (including the 1.5 mile jogging track which encircles the reservoir) help make life pleasant.
