Jane’s Walk – Virtual tour Carnegie–Engineers’ Gate Plaza

 

This walk centers on Andrew Carnegie’s purchase in 1898 of the lots on Fifth Avenue between 90th and 92nd Street, as well as the evolution of the importance of the 90th Street entrance to Central Park at 90th Street, also referred to as Engineers’ Gate. Carnegie built his retirement home on 91st and Fifth Avenue with the garden facing 90th Street—both still intact today and home of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum. This also served as the headquarters of his philanthropic efforts until his death in 1919. His sale of the remaining properties to individuals of means, who built substantial mansions (most still intact today), had a profound impact on the historic importance of the neighborhood—a veritable “museum without walls” and soon came to be called Carnegie Hill. He later bought the site on the south side of 90th Street that became the home of the Church of the Heavenly Rest. These two blocks with Engineers’ Gate form a kind of plaza that is much frequented. The addition of Frank Lloyd Wright’s designed Guggenheim Museum occupying the full block between 88th and 89th Streets forms a consistent extension of the plaza.
