Get a Special Tour of Gracie Mansion in Carl Schurz Park!
Step inside the historic Gracie Mansion with the one-of-a-kind tour offered on Tuesday, December 5th! This staple of New York City architecture will open its doors for visitors to explore the home of 10 mayors, offering an exclusive look to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Gracie Mansion serving as the mayoral residence.
Sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, New York City mayors have called Gracie Mansion home since 1942. This special guided tour will take you through the halls and history of the mansion, and in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of Gracie being a mayoral residence, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled New York 1942. This is the second in a series of installations envisioning New York through the framework of Gracie Mansion as it has been inhabited over time. It includes artwork, documents and objects spanning throughout the structure’s history, showing a more complete story of the overall historic context as perceived from diverse perspectives. Don’t miss the chance to see this incredible display and walk through the halls of Gracie Mansion on this amazing tour!
At B’nai B’rith Queens Apartments in Flushing, New York, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun at this event!
