From the October issue: After the final ballot has been counted in next month’s election, New York City will have a new mayor for the first time since 2002. Whoever wins will get the keys to the city and to one of the most valuable homes in New York — Gracie Mansion, the official mayor’s residence at East End Avenue and 88th Street.

Republican nominee Joe Lhota told the Daily News that he’d make Gracie his weeknight home, but might spend his weekends at his current abode in Brooklyn Heights, while Democratic nominee Bill de Blasio said the extra space would be tempting, but that he’d wait until elected to decide where to live. “We fight over the bathroom all the time … Gracie obviously has a little more space,” he told the paper.

Here’s a look at the storied Upper East Side residence that one of the candidates will be inheriting.
