In 1880,1884, he was elected mayor of New York, the first Catholic to fill that office. He took an active part in succoring the famine-stricken Irish in 1879, and in 1897 founded at New York the Grace Institute to give free tuition in clerical work, dress-making, and housekeeping to women and girls.
