It’s no surprise Carnegie Hill on the Upper East Side is named for one of the many homes of Andrew Carnegie, one of America’s richest men.
Today the neighborhood’s reputation for affluence hasn’t strayed too far, with stately townhouses, fine dining, and iconic streets like Fifth, Park, and Lexington Avenues. Between the pearles and Porsches, you can find unexpected, trendy destinations like Kaia Wine Bar and Earl’s Beer and Cheese.
The Upper East Side micro- neighborhood’s namesake Carnegie Mansion now houses the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
The Museum Mile (and beyond) extends both north and south with the Museum of the City of New York, the Guggenheim Museum, The Africa Center, and of course the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Both Nice Stay Fifth and Nice Stay 80th sit between the majestic Central Park and the East River-adjacent Carl Schurz Park, essentially the mayor’s mansion backyard).
