Gracie Mansion information
This Federal-style home served as the country residence of merchant Archibald Gracie in 1799. Since 1942, it has been where New York’s mayors have lived – with the exception of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who preferred his own plush, Upper East Side digs. The house has been added to and renovated over the years. To peer inside, you’ll have to go online to reserve a spot on one of the 45-minute house tours held once a week (less frequently during the holiday season).
The home is bordered by the pleasant, riverside Carl Schurz Park.
