Carnegie Hill

Carnegie Hill is the area between 86th and 96th Streets, and between Third and Fifth Avenues that is home to many of the city’s private schools and the families whose children attend them. The neighborhood derives its name from the Carnegie Mansion, former home of Andrew Carnegie and current home of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, well worth a visit at 91st Street and Fifth Avenue. In this neighborhood you will find wonderful shops: clothing and shoes for women and children, gourmet food and wine stores, bookstores and toy stores--each with its own personality and fine service, as they are often proprietor owned and operated.
