…as the Fourth of July approaches here in New York City–visit the birthplace of Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States. The birthplace museum, located in Manhattan at 28 East 20th Street, is a reconstruction of the original house that Teddy was born in way back on October 27, 1858. He lived in the original house at this address with his family until 1872 when everyone moved up to 57th Street to spread out a bit. Fast forward a number of years and the house was demolished in 1916 to make room for retail construction. But when Roosevelt died in 1919 the lot was repurchased by a group called the Women’s Roosevelt Memorial Association, and the house was rebuilt as closely as possible to the original. Wow, what a sight, and what a great place to visit if you have no plans to be at the beach for the Fourth. . .or you can just visit any ole time you like:-)
