Roosevelt House was featured in the New York Times this morning, December 16, 2016.  The Times’ Jim Dwyer tells the story of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s transition team meetings here at 47-49 East 65th Street.

Dwyer writes: “If an estate in Hyde Park, N.Y., is landmarked in our historical consciousness as the Roosevelt residence, the family’s onetime city house, about 90 miles south, has its own claim as the incubator for the public lives of Roosevelt and Eleanor, two of the most consequential figures of 20th-century America. They lived there for most of 25 years.”
