Living in the Upper East Side | Carnegie Hill

Living in the Upper East Side
181 East 93rd Street
Buyers with conservative budgets as well as those with more to spend will find treasure troves of real estate offerings in the Upper East Side. Walk-ups and high-rises mix easily with stately townhomes, while co-ops, exposed-brick studios and modern high-end apartments present abundant housing options. 

Upper East Side real estate encapsulates the hip yet established atmosphere and sophisticated style still in demand today. Georgian, Victorian, Neo-Federal and Art Deco styles abound, and genteel, friendly living reigns.

Carnegie Hill, Upper East Side Manhattan  

Uptown on the East Side, from 86th Street to 98th Street and from Lexington Avenue to Central Park. 




The Carnegie Hill section of Manhattan, full of magnificient  townhouses  that are rarely for sale because their owners tend to hang  on to them,  has wonderful access to Central Park.


Larger buildings house prewar  apartments of six or seven rooms, known as “ Classic Sixes and “Classic  Sevens,

 The resulting old-world  feel, even in modern condos in Carnegie Hill, shows you why  steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie picked this quiet, countrified section of  Manhattan as the place to build his ultimate family home.

Even now, Carnegie Hill feels like a grand village tucked away from  some  of Gotham’s hustle and bustle.

Whether you’re walking on Park  Avenue  with its tulip plantings, past French and Italian renaissance  apartment  buildings with doorman luxury hidden behind their ornate  fa├žades, or  along a side street with its well-preserved brownstones,  you’ll 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’ll 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.

The Coper Hewitt, National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution is  the only museum in the  nation devoted exlusively to historic and  contemporary design. Cooper Hewitt is located in the landmark Andrew  Carnegie Mansion on Fifth Avenue.
