For no specific reason, other than opinions of others (and the movie sideways), I've never been too interested in trying either. However, being open to all things new, I've now tried both. As a part of OHNY we were able to sign up for a free tour of the Carnegie Hill neighborhood. The neighborhood is on such a grand scale it's impossible not to appreciate the beauty.
Carnegie Hill is named for the mansion that Andrew Carnegie built at 91st and 5th in 1901. The neighborhood is home to the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, The Jewish Museum, the National Academy of Design, the House of the Redeemer, and the Dalton School. Our tour took us by these sites and provided a brief history of each.
Here are some pictures taken on the tour. For more, feel free to check out the FLICKR set on Carnegie Hill.
