King’s Gambit In a city where location is king, the landmark district of Carnegie Hill delivers a checkmate. This prestigious Manhattan neighbourhood is crowned with architectural gems: the red brick towers of Madison Avenue Armory, the Florentine palazzo of 1930s financier and philanthropist Otto H. Kahn, and the sprawling Andrew Carnegie Mansion, which now houses the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. When an eclectic, sunlit one bedroom in a pre-war building within this sought after neighbourhood and on the doorstep of Central Park comes into play, make sure to take the first move advantage. The board is set - not in blacks and whites, but rather, a colourful collection of treasures. Door knobs salvaged from The Plaza, and a bedroom mirror made out of an original window frame from the Toy Center on Fifth Avenue. The living room has a Bohemian tempo, with a Kilim rug spread over the hardwood floors, a blue and white porcelain lamp illuminating the room. Shelves are stacked with books on chess, as well as autographed memorabilia from greats like former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov. The kitchen is equipped for a full-fledged cooking session as the inviting steel appliances and warm dark wood cabinets will easily lure you in. Inside the bedroom, the seat by the window is a good spot for studying up or for reclining underneath the Frank Gehry cloud lamp.
