Hellgate Hill, situated in one of Manhattan's most sought-after neighborhoods of Carnegie Hill, was named after brewing mogul George Ehret's Hell Gate Brewery, which established in 1866 on East 92nd and 93rd between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Ehret built a brownstone mansion at 1197 Park Avenue in 1878, positioned near his Hell Gate Brewery on 3rd Avenue between 93rd and 92nd Street. Although the mansion had since been demolished in 1928, Hellgate Hill lives on.
This incredible block in Hellgate Hill is characterized by a gorgeous tree-lined street, low garden walls, elegant rear facades, and contiguous 50-foot-deep gardens which run from house to house.
