Gracie Mansion

Gracie Mansion façade

The façade of Gracie Mansion.


Gracie Mansion library

The library has retained much of its original character; the mantel
and the dentil molding date to the construction of the house in 1799.


Gracie Mansion foyer

The foyer's trompe l'oeil painted floor appears to be made of marble.
Its design features a compass rose, which pays homage to Gracie's
success as a shipping merchant.


Gracie Mansion parlor

The patent-yellow parlor is part of the circa 1810 addition to the
house, and provided the Gracie family with more room in which to
entertain guests at their renowned parties.
