Built by and named for philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in 1891, this impressive building is the tallest example of masonry unsupported by steel frame in the New York area. It comprises three large, separate performance spaces for both classical and popular music, despite the New York Philharmonic flying the nest in 1962 to The Lincoln Center. It is also the focus of a well-known joke about how to get there ("Practice").
