Carl Schurz Park and Gracie Mansion, 1940

Carl Schurz Park and Gracie Mansion, 1940

A light dusting of snow has fallen on Carl Schurz Park. Gracie Mansion overlooks Hell Gate from the north end of the park. The mayor did not reside here in 1940. At this point the mansion was simply a historic house, which most recently had been the Museum of City of New York. Only in 1942, at the urging of Robert Moses, did Mayor Fiorello La Guardia appropriate the house as the mayoral residence.
