            In honor of Presidents Day, TheStreet recognizes a few presidents who spent time in New York City's Financial District. George Washington conducted pre-Revolution meetings at Fraunces Tavern, still-standing on 54 Pearl Street. After he became President, Washington took the oath of office at Federal Hall on 26 Wall Street, where a statue commemorating the unprecedented moment stands today. When Thomas Jefferson moved to New York in 1790, he rented a house at 57 Maiden Lane, and the historic location is memorialized by a plaque on the current structure. Franklin D. Roosevelt became a junior clerk in 1907 with the still-operating firm of Carter, Ledyard and Milburn on 2 Wall Street. FDR later worked at the old NY Chamber of Commerce building at 67 Liberty Street before running for president. In 1985, Ronald Reagan was the first sitting president visit to the New York Stock Exchange, proclaiming, “We’re going to turn that bull loose.” In 2014, President Barack Obama made a dedication and officially opened the National September 11 Memorial Museum. "Nothing can ever break us; nothing can change who we are as Americans, " Obama’s words rang out patriotically.

                The Raab Collection has acquired and is offering for sale newly discovered letters which form the private correspondence between Franklin D. Roosevelt and his long time friend, Commander George C. Sweet. These personal letters show FDR’s uncensored thoughts on prohibition, the great stock market crash, the supreme court, and Hitler. Below are a few quotes from the archive: President Franklin D. Roosevelt Opposes Appeasement and Virtually Predicts World War II and American Involvement in It Four Years Before Pearl Harbor: “The dictator nations find their bluffs are not being called and that encourages other nations to play the same game.

Roosevelt Reaches for a Drink of Fine Port: Breaking out a 51 year old bottle for Christmas 1933, just weeks after repeal: “It was a great privilege for the family to drink the family toast… in an honest product” Wall Street Greed Caused the Stock Market Crash That Brought on the Depression: "The fault lies with Wall Street.

                  I made this as a video project for a history class in college. Once again, I decided to go on the ridiculous route. The music is a Dethklok song called "Murmaider." I do not own that song and am in no way trying to make any money off it. I love me some Dethklok though.
