Franklin Roosevelt

Roosevelt Townhouse

When Roosevelt got married, he and Eleanor moved into a brownstone at 125 East 36th Street. Roosevelt had previously been living at 200 Madison Avenue, with his widowed mother, Sara Delano Roosevelt. He couldn’t escape his mother and in 1907, two years after they got married, the three of them moved into a townhouse at  47-49 East 65th Street. The building currently houses the  Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute.
