DONATE TO THE GRACIE MANSION CONSERVANCY
Help us preserve Gracie Mansion, one of the oldest surviving wood structures
in Manhattan and home to the mayors of New York City since 1942.
The Honorable David N. Dinkins
The Gracie Mansion Conservancy salutes the life of civic pioneer, David N. Dinkins, New York’s 106th Mayor (1990-1993,), who along with his late wife, First Lady Joyce Burrows Dinkins, were the 10th mayoral family to reside at The People’s House, home to the City’s mayors since 1942. His leadership example is his proud legacy.
Founded in 1981 by Mayor Edward I. Koch and its charter Board Chair,
Joan K. Davidson, the Gracie Mansion Conservancy is a private not-for-profit corporation established to preserve, maintain, enhance, and enliven Gracie Mansion – one of the oldest surviving wood structures in Manhattan and home to the sitting mayors of New York City and their families since 1942, when the La Guardias arrived as the first official residents.
The Gracie Mansion Conservancy offers an array of programs
from historical Gracie Tours to the Gracie Book Club.
