NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: Visit the property where America's 26th President grew up at the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site in Manhattan. The only President from New York, Theodore Roosevelt's Birthplace gives NYC tourists the chance to experience a replica of the famous President's home, and features five period rooms with real Roosevelt memorabilia that visitors are allowed to walk through and see up close.

Why We Go: The Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace Site is a hidden gem in NYC, and one that not even many New Yorkers are aware of. This NYC townhouse allows visitors to learn more about one of the nation's greatest Presidents, and features tons of real Roosevelt artifacts.

  • Roosevelt Memorabilia: Memorabilia and artifacts featured at the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace site include the shirt President Roosevelt was wearing when he was shot, a taxidermy lion he killed in Africa, a replica of the Nobel Peace Prize he won, and his famous Rough Rider colonel uniform.
  • Teddy's History: National Park Rangers lead the tour at Theodore Roosevelt's Birthplace site - fitting because Pres. Roosevelt was a leader when it came to preserving wildlife areas and historical U.S. sites. The park rangers at Theodore Roosevelt's Birthplace site give you plenty of information on the legacy of this larger than life President, and can answer just about every question you have in mind for them.

Inside Knowledge: While not exactly Theodore Roosevelt's Birthplace, this near-perfect replica was founded by President Roosevelt's family as a tribute to the great President, and stands on the very same property where T.R. was born. The original house was torn down in 1916, and after five years of construction, the replica that stands today was opened to the public in 1924.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Check Out the Lobby: The lobby at Teddy Roosevelt's Birthplace Site is where you'll find most of the artifacts of President Roosevelt, which were donated by his family and are displayed behind glass.
  • Do Expect a Half-Hour Tour: Guided tours at the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace site generally run about a half-hour, with more time before and after the tour for exploring the lobby.
  • Don't Miss the Films on Teddy: Located in the lobby of the Birthplace of Theodore Roosevelt are films detailing the stories and legacy of the 26th President of the United states.
  • Don't Forget Your Camera: With so much to see at Teddy Roosevelt's Birthplace Historic Site, you won't want to leave your camera behind for this popular NYC attraction.
