Today’s Lead: De Blasio to Live in Gracie Mansion


 

 eyeopenerbw2

After weeks of uncertainty Mayor-Elect Bill de Blasio announced yesterday that he would move his family into Gracie Mansion and out of their home in Park Slope. De Blasio announced the move in a letter posted to his website and signed by his wife and two children. Concerns about his son's commute to Brooklyn Tech high school were part of the decision-making but the letter from the de Blasio's cites security concerns as a major factor in the move to Gracie Mansion. De Blasio will be the first mayor since Rudolph Giuliani to call Gracie Mansion home.
