New York City Mayor Eric Adams told the media that he believes Gracie Mansion is haunted.
Adams added that the stately home on Manhattan’s Upper East Side is not his style.
“And I don’t care what anyone says, there are ghosts in there, man,” Adams said.
He revealed that he saw things move inside even if no one was touching these things.
“Listen, they’re creeping around,” Adams added.
Gracie Mansion was built in 1799 as a country home on a picturesque bend of the East River a few miles north of what was then New York City’s northern edge.
A century later, it was bought by the city and incorporated into Carl Schurz Park in the modern-day Yorkville neighborhood of the Upper East Side. It was used as the Museum of the City of New York before becoming the official mayoral residence in 1942.
