Archibald Gracie built Gracie Mansion in 1799. In 1966, a new west wing (the Wagner Wing) was added under the instruction of first lady Susan Wagner.
The building was restored (1981–1984) by the Gracie Mansion Conservancy, and again in 2002.
Gracie Mansion is in the Federal style and has two stories.
In 1942, Robert Moses successfully convinced then-mayor Fiorello LaGuardia to appropriate the house as a mayoral residence. Its main floor is open to the public and serves as a small museum.
As of 2005, current mayor Michael Bloomberg does not live in Gracie Mansion, although he uses it for meetings and events. At the beginning of Bloomberg's term he launched a major restoration of the mansion, which was funded by an unknown donor, reported to be Bloomberg. Bloomberg has used the Mansion as a place for official visitors to stay while in the city.
