Wallet Card at two presidential birthplaces

Two US presidents were born in New York City. The first was Theodore Roosevelt, who was born at 28 E. 20th Street in 1858. The house was torn down in 1916 but upon Roosevelt's death in 1919 it was rebuilt and remains today as a museum.

Donald Trump was born at Jamaica Hospital, just north of the LIRR tracks, in 1946. You may be able to see the words "Trump Pavilion" on the closest hospital building. It is named after Mary Trump, the President's mother, who made a large charitable contribution to the hospital in 1975.
