Owner description: In 1942 New York City mayor Fiorello La Guardia opted to live in Gracie Mansions instead of his palatial residence on Riverside Drive. Since then it has served as the mayoral residence.

The governor's mansion was easy to visit, I had no difficulty booking tickets. The tour size is small, the house itself interesting, and the grounds are lovely. It feels like a brief escape from the city, and a step back to an earlier New York.

I enjoyed it very much.

The view from the deck of the East River is wonderful. Worth the 7 dollars fee. The house is breathtaking...I could move in.

Gracie Mansion is open on Wednesdays to the public for about a 45 minute tour. Reservations need to be made and can be made on the internet - - very reasonable - $4 for Seniors. This is the official residence of the mayor of NYC - and used primarily for public functions. A lot of history attached - located on the East River @ 88th Street. A nice park adjacent and you can walk along the river.

The guided tour around this beautiful old mansion takes around 45 minutes. There is a lot to see and the guides are well-informed and professional. The carpets, walls, furniture and building itself are all exemplary. There are a couple of tours each day but you have to book by telephone beforehand. Don't just turn up as you probably won't get onto the tour.
