- Theodore Roosevelt has the distinction of being the only president born in New York City. His brownstone residence near Gramercy Park has been restored to reflect his early life, from 1858 to 1862. The house was demolished in 1916, but rebuilt shortly afterwards with the help of Roosevelt's sisters. Almost half the furnishings in the museum come from the original structure. The National Park Service oversees the administration of the site, and there is a 40-minute tour every hour on the hour and a gallery.
