If your New York dream street is tree-lined, sunny and replete with well-bred people, children, and pooches, it matches perfectly the many that run through upscale, family centered Carnegie Hill. Carnegie Hall, BTW, 30 blocks south, (see Midtown West) was also named for Andrew Carnegie, steel robber baron/philanthropist. Although you may never go to Carnegie Hill to rent or buy one of its peerless apartments, no one will bid you nay if you choose to watch the November marathon from its slice of Fifth Avenue. First be sure to check Museum Mile (Consider starting with The Metropolitan, Guggenheim and Carnegie’s own home-sweet-mansion now the Cooper-Hewitt Museum .) And you are more than welcome to view incomparable, stately neo-gothic architecture on your way to a boutique bonanza on its lovely streets.
