NYC Mayor Eric Adams considers housing migrants at Gracie Mansion

Mayor Eric Adams on Tuesday threw out the welcome mat at Gracie Mansion to migrants — saying he’d be happy to house asylum-seekers at the site, which boasts grandeur most New Yorkers can only dream about. “I am a big believer in leading from the front,” Adams said when asked by The Post if he would offer up his own stately, historic Upper East Side home as part of the city’s new plan to pay to house migrants in private residences. “If it doesn’t go against legal protocols — there are protocols in place so I can’t use the building in any way I want — but I don’t have a problem if I could put a migrant family in Gracie Mansion.” The 224-year-old estate on East 88th Street — which Adams claims is haunted by ghosts — boasts lovely views of the East River and five bedrooms on the second floor, with the downstairs largely used for receptions and events hosted by City Hall. The property is also rented out for non-city functions such as weddings. Adams said he is seeking “cheaper” housing options for the city’s rush of migrants.
