Tour Gracie Mansion

Gracie Mansion was originally built in 1799 as a country house for New York merchant Archibald Gracie.  It was taken over by New York City in 1896, and became the centerpiece of the newly created Carl Schurz Park.  The guided tour will begin at 1:00 pm sharp, and will last 45 minutes.  There is no seating, and we will have to stand for the entire tour.  General admission for adults is $7.00, seniors 62 and above, pay $4.00.  Please bring cash to give the organizers your admission money beforehand.  The mansion contact has requested that.   Please bring the EXACT AMOUNT as the organizers will not be able to make change.  Here are a few pictures of what we will see.

The yellow parlor is part of the circa 1810 addition to the house

After the tour, we will have lunch at

Please add $1.00 in cash for the organizers to the entrance fees before the tour begins.  Thank you.

    Barbara the same thing happened to me. However I had been confirmed originally and then all of a sudden taken off the list. So I put myself on the wait list and got confirmed one hour before.

    It sounds like you all had a great time and I am so sorry I wasn't there. Unfortunately I did not know I was off the wait list until after the tour. Hope to see you all next time.

    Thanks for arranging this tour Joan. I have lived in NY all my life and never had the opportunity to take a tour of Gracie Mansion. Tour guides were great .

    Interesting tour. I've always read about Gradie Mansion, but never saw it. Beautiful place full of history. Lunch was pleasant with a friendly congenial group. It was a warm but picture perfect day for a tour.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
