Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Re-Opens

This is going to be a "must attend" for our family...

The recently restored two-story Memorial -- which includes the iconic Central Park West fa├žade, Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda, and Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall -- serves as New York State’s official memorial to its 33rd Governor and the nation’s 26th President.
