In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm.

Discussion |


Economics professors Teresa Ghilarducci and Darrick Hamilton discuss two versions of a controversial solution to wealth and risk inequality – assets for the poor, middle class, and the dispossessed. Baby Bonds and Guaranteed Retirement Accounts are superficially financialization of welfare programs. However, they argue that wealth accounts – baby bonds and guaranteed retirement accounts – reduce risks to families of living in capitalism, redistribute risk, and promote productive lives.

Erwin Redl’s Whiteout is a magnificent public art project commissioned by Madison Square Park Conservancy and is on view in the park through March 25, 2018.
