Democrat Andrew Cuomo, who as governor of New York, is immersed in tremendous controversy after six women accused him of sexual harassment.
The last of them, who worked with him and whose identity has not been disclosed, said that the governor put his hands in her blouse and touched her breasts after he called her to help him solve a problem with his phone.
The aforementioned abuse would have been carried out inside the Albany Executive Mansion, a site that since 1875 has been the home of the governors and their families, being Samuel Tilden the first to inhabit it.
The residence, located on Eagle Street, was built in 1856 to be inhabited by a banker.
Since then it has undergone some transformations, since at the beginning it was in the Italian style, later details of the Second Empire were incorporated and today it is in the Queen Anne style.
Several of the governors have carried out various reforms, Theodore Roosevelt incorporated a gymnasium, while Franklin D. Roosevelt had a swimming pool built, which eventually became a greenhouse.
Years later Mario Cuomo reinstalled the pool, Al Smith built a zoo, while Nelson Rockefeller was behind the installation of the tennis courts.
One of the most dramatic moments on the property was experienced in 1961 after a fire consumed part of its structure.
Although at that time it was contemplated to move the residence of the governor to another site, Nelson Rockefeller fought to conserve it and it obtained it.
Even before the pandemic, the property, included in the National Register of Historic Sites, could be visited, with prior reservation, on Thursdays from September to June, while in July and August it was closed for these purposes.
