1st night at Gracie Mansion for NYC mayor, family

New York

NEW YORK (AP) — It's home, sweet new home for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his family.

Spokeswoman Rebecca Katz says the mayor, his wife and two children will spend their first night in Gracie Mansion on Sunday night.

They're expected to return from a vacation in Italy Sunday afternoon.

Gracie Mansion is the official mayor's residence, but had been empty for more than a decade. Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg chose to stay in his own home on the Upper East Side.

De Blasio had spent some time debating whether to move out of his family's home in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn, but the family ultimately decided to make the shift.

They began the moving process at the beginning of June.
