Carnegie Hill is a neighborhood within the Upper East Side, in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. Roughly speaking, it is bounded by 86th Street on the south, Third Avenue on the east, 98th Street (i.e., East Harlem) on the north, and Fifth Avenue (i.e., Central Park) on the west. The neighborhood is part of Manhattan Community Board 8.The neighborhood is named for the mansion that Andrew Carnegie built at Fifth Avenue and 91st Street in 1901. The mansion is today the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, a branch of the Smithsonian Institution.

The architecture of the neighborhood is an eclectic mix of taller residential buildings, lush mansions, townhouses, and even wood-built homes built over a nearly 200-year span. Many of the neighborhood's esteemed townhouses were actually built during the Reconstruction period, with four or five houses being cheaply laid down in row. While some of the facades of these older homes have been remodeled, there are still many identical houses running the length of the numbered streets in the area. A number of wooden houses still survive in the area.

One of New York's most prestigious and expensive neighborhoods, most of the neighborhood's opulent townhouses are protected as part of the Carnegie Hill Historic District. Many of the townhouses are single family residences, although some have been converted to apartments.
Known for its "suburban" family-friendly atmosphere, Carnegie Hill boasts many fine restaurants, upscale boutiques, and gourmet food stores. Following New York City's tradition of similar stores residing next to one another, the stretch of Madison Avenue that runs through Carnegie Hill is known for its numerous children's clothing boutiques. Also within Carnegie Hill along Fifth Avenue is the National Academy Museum in the former Huntington mansion and the Jewish Museum in the former Warburg mansion. The El Museo del Barrio and the Museum of the City of New York are both just north of Carnegie Hill also along Fifth Avenue, the the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Guggenheim Museum and the Neue Gallerie in the former Vanderbilt mansion just to the south. Together these museums partly comprise the famed "Museum Mile".
