Open Mansion

ALBANY—Once again, New Yorkers can check out the house they paid for.

The Paterson family announced that they will continue the tradition of opening up the Executive Mansion on Eagle Street – which Mario Cuomo was the last governor to really use as a primary residence – to the public on New Year's day.

Citizens can register for the event here.
