Mayor Bill de Blasio hosts open house at Gracie Mansion
Hundreds of people waited in line for a chance to meet new Mayor Bill de Blasio as he opened the doors of Gracie Mansion to the public today.
City officials say its the first public open house and meet-and-greet a New York City mayor has done in years.
Some people stood in line for close to three hours to meet de Blasio. Hot chocolate and cider were also handed out to the guests.
