BdB Begins Gracie Mansion Move; Big Night at the Museums

New, 3 comments

GRACIE MANSION—The first family has commenced their move from Park Slope to Gracie Mansion, noted in a press release from the Mayor's office which acutely details the two family heirlooms that have made the bi-borough trip thus far. The two items are as follows: 1) the rocking chair given to the couple by the Mayor's mother, Maria Wilhelm, before the birth of daughter Chiara, and 2) First Lady Chirlane McCray's mother's sewing table. But noting just two significant items of the family's collective heap? Perhaps the Mayor's office will take to sending out updates on the status of the rest of the family's in-transit goods.
