Carnegie Hill in Manhattan

Elegance on the Upper East Side

With Francis Morrone

Our route will take in the blocks between Fifth Avenue and Park Avenue north of 86th Street. Carnegie Hill–named for Andrew Carnegie, the neighborhood’s richest resident and most important landowner, whose house is now the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum–boasts houses by many of the finest architects of early 20th-century New York, including Horace Trumbauer, Grosvenor Atterbury, Carrère & Hastings, Warren & Wetmore, Delano & Aldrich, John Russell Pope, Francis Burrall Hoffman, Mott B. Schmidt, and–our hero for the afternoon–Ogden Codman Jr. (co-author with Edith Wharton of “The Decoration of Houses,” 1897). For good measure, let’s throw in Frank Lloyd Wright. And we won’t neglect some of the neighborhood’s fabled denizens, including Carnegie, Otto Kahn, Felix Warburg, and Grace Vanderbilt.
