    Mayor Fiorello La Guardia lived here in the summer of 1936, when an unusually bad heat wave drove him out of City Hall. He directed the city’s business from the basement until the weather cooled off.

    Around the holidays the mansion is filled with Christmas trees decorated by artists after characters in children’s books. Simply magical!

    The Bartow-Pell Mansion is one of the most beautiful historic homes in the city. A NYC and a National Landmark, it dates back to 1654 and was once used as a summer residence by Fiorello La Guardia.
