Built in 1927 by notable New York architect, George F. Pelham, 21 East 90th Street is a full service building on one of the prettiest streets in all of Manhattan. This historic block was selected by Andrew Carnegie because it is the high point of what is now known as Carnegie Hill. This quiet, tree-lined street is also home to the Cooper Hewitt Museum and its enclosed garden (a national historic landmark) as well as the magnificent neo-gothic Limestone Church of the Heavenly Rest. This incredible location is close to several of the city's best schools (both public and private) and less than a block from the Engineer's Gate entrance to the park and Reservoir.
