(Rebecca Fishbein) The Oracle Has Spoken: the de Blasios announced today that after much debate, they will be moving into Gracie Mansion come January. Sorry Dante, now your chauffeured commute to school is going to take a bit longer.
The de Blasios announced their move from Park Slope to the far reaches of Yorkville in a statement on de Blasio's transition website this morning. "It’s a tough decision. Brooklyn is our home and Park Slope is our neighborhood," they said, adding they were making the move due to "logistical and security concerns," among other reasons (the NYPD has previously said security in Park Slope would not have been a problem for the de Blasios). "We’ll miss Brooklyn, but we are incredibly gratified to the people of New York for the opportunity to live in the Mayor’s residence."
