NYC - UES - 5th Avenue/Museum Mile

Museum Mile is the name for a stretch of Fifth Avenue running from 82nd to 105th streets on the Upper East Side in a neighborhood known as Carnegie Hill. New York City officially designated this segment as Museum Mile because it is the location of nine museums, several of which are world-renowned. A tenth museum, the Museum for African Art, will be joining the ensemble in 2008.


The nine museums, north to south, are:

* El Museo del Barrio at 104th Street

* Museum of the City of New York (MCNY) at 103rd Street

* The Jewish Museum at 92nd Street

* Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution at 91st Street

* National Academy Museum and School of Fine Arts at 89th Street

* Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum at 88th Street

* Neue Galerie New York at 86th Street

* Goethe-Institut New York/German Cultural Center at 83rd Street

* The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) at 82nd Street


Other museums in the area include:

* Frick Collection and Reference Library at 70th Street

* Whitney Museum of American Art at 75th Street and Madison Avenue
