Behold the new — and old — home of Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo, the 40-room Victorian mansion that’s sat mostly unused by the governors since his father, Mario Cuomo, left office 16 years ago. David Paterson spent only 55 days in the house during his first nine months on the job, while Eliot Spitzer preferred his Fifth Avenue apartment or his farm in Columbia County and George Pataki’s own Putnam County mansion served as his primary residence. But the younger Cuomo plans to return the Albany property to the home it was when his father lived there, spending several nights per week there (he’ll head to Mount Kisco on Wednesdays, Thursdays and every other weekend to see his three teenage daughters, whom he had with ex-wife Kerry Kennedy). Cuomo was 25 when his father was elected, having grown up in a modest row house in Hollis, Queens, but he told the New York Times that he thinks of the Eagle Street mansion, which is set on six acres, as a “magical place” that “gives you a sense of the importance of state government and what it was all about, and how seriously it was taken.” [NYT]
