Parks Commissioner Robert Moses convinced the City that it should become the home of the Mayor, and in 1942 Fiorello LaGuardia became its first resident. In 1966 a major addition, which includes a large ballroom and two intimate reception rooms, was completed. The visit to the House will begin with a lovely high tea of delicious sandwiches, scrumptious little cakes, and assorted teas followed by a private tour of this historic wood edifice nestled in the 11 acres of Carl Schurz Park made this man a legend.
