Gracie Mansion Renovations

Postby Dave Gittins » Wed Sep 04, 2013 10:20 am

I see Gracie Mansion, once the residence of Colonel Gracie, is now being renovated. The mansion, built in 1799, is the official residence of the mayor of New York, but the present mayor, Michael Bloomberg, chose not to live there and opened it to the public. It's now rather the worse for wear and it's being prepared for the use of the next mayor, who is expected to live in it.

The whole tale is on US news sites, but you may find they are paywalled.
