Top 10 Carnegie Hill

There are lots of handsome pre-war New York City apartment buildings on Fifth and Park avenues in Carnegie Hill but the real attraction to this extremely popular neighborhood for families is the very impressive number of private schools and cultural institutions.  Geographically, no other neighborhood in the city begins to compete by those important measures.  The Top 10 Carnegie Hill apartment buildings also provide easy access to the area’s charming boutiques for children’s things and restaurants for ladies who lunch.

#1 - 1107 Fifth Avenue

Just to the north of Otto Kahn's fabulous townhouse that is now the Sacred Heart School, this handsome apartment house was erected with a private driveway and elevator of a 54-room triplex penthouse owned by Mrs. Marjorie Merriweather Post Hutton that was ultimately subdivided.

  • Two apartments currently for sale from $11,995,000 to $18,500,000

#2 - 1185 Park Avenue

With its handsome, Gothic-inspired, triple-arch entrance and driveway, this is one of the very few grand courtyard apartment buildings left in Manhattan and the only one still standing on Park Avenue.

  • Eleven apartments currently for sale from $3,250,000 to $21,950,000

#3 - 1060 Fifth Avenue

Designed by J. E. R. Carpenter, the foremost designer of luxury apartment buildings in the early and mid-1920s, this handsome building has a very large and impressive lobby on the sidestreet and the building replaced the imposing mansion of Henry Phipps, a partner of Andrew Carnegie.

  • Two apartments currently for sale from $5,100,000 to $34,500,000

#4 - 1040 Park Avenue

This cooperative apartment building was built in 1925 with a large penthouse for Conde Nast, the publisher, and it was the first famous penthouse in the city.

#6 - Carnegie Hill Tower, 40 East 94th Street

Directly south of the "ruins" of the Squadron A Armory, this 32-story, pale-beige apartment building was started by H. R. Shapiro but community activists hired Terry G. Twitchell and Nancy Al-Tseng Miao for an alternative design to preserve a nearby older building, the Alamo, and eventually Shapiro withdrew and was replaced by Frederick DeMatteis and Charles Shaw who saved the Alamo and made peace with the powerfully active community.

  • Eight apartments currently for sale from $995,000 to $4,995,000

#7 - 1088 Park Avenue

With its double-height entrance and large arched windo provided glimpses of its large garden, this is one of the boulevard's few apartment houses with a truly grand entry that ties together two buildings separated by a "hold-out."

  • Three apartments currently for sale from $4,250,000 to $5,195,000

#8 - 60 East 88th Street

One of the city's most handsome Post-Modern apartment buildings, this building, setback in a driveway, is across the street from the large garden of 1088 Park Avenue and the large rear plaza of the apartment tower of 50 East 89th Street, thus affording all three buildings considerable "light and air."

#9 - Park Regis, 50 East 89th Street

Designed in 1974 by Emery Roth & Sons for Peter Sharp, this may well be the best new mid-block, side-street building in the city in decades and it features large maisonette units with gardens. 

  • Four apartments currently for sale from $1,049,000 to $3,350,000

#10 - 21 East 96th Street

This very pleasant, 2004 mid-rise  apartment building on Madison Avenue avoided the heated controversy of a similar-size project a few blocks to the south that happened to be in an historic district.
