Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 29, 1962):
Carnegie Hall was built by Andrew Carnegie and designed principally by William Burnett Tuthill with additions by Henry J. Hardenburgh. Originally named "Music Hall", the facility was among the first performing arts complexes and quickly helped establish New York as the cultural capitol of America and a gravitational force for great music worldwide. Carnegie Hall narrowly escaped demolition in 1960 and at that time ownership was transferred to the City of New York.

Carnegie Hall has applied for a Save America's Treasures grant in 2004 in order to replace the deteriorated roof.
