NEW YORK (AP) - New York’s First Family has rented out their Brooklyn home.

A spokeswoman for Mayor Bill de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray confirmed they received their asking price of $4,975 a month.

The de Blasio family rented it to the first couple who saw the three-bedroom property, which sits in the neighborhood of Park Slope known for young families and liberal politics.

The rental was first reported Thursday by The Wall Street Journal.

De Blasio and McCray met with their tenants before the lease was signed.

Their identities were not disclosed. They signed a one-year lease.

De Blasio made his Brooklyn roots part of his political identity and speaks lovingly about the borough.

His family moved into the official mayoral residence, Gracie Mansion, earlier this year.
