A Barbie Display of Eleanor Roosevelt at Apthorp Cleaners

There’s a sweet new window display in the Upper West Side window known most for its displays … Apthorp Cleaners (at 383 Amsterdam Avenue, between 78th and 79th Streets)!. Debra Kravet, the store’s owner for over 38 years, tells us the new diorama – depicting the Eleanor Roosevelt Statue on 72nd and Riverside Drive (which we coincidentally just published an article about) – will live in the window through July 9.

How Greenwich Village shaped Eleanor Roosevelt

When Eleanor Roosevelt, the future first lady, was born on Oct. 11, 1884, her mother, Anna, a beautiful Manhattan socialite, expressed some dismay at the appearance of her child, telling her husband, Elliott Roosevelt, “She is a little more wrinkled and has a less attractive body than the average baby.” Anna took to calling her first daughter “Granny” because of Eleanor’s shy, solemn demeanor.

A Radical Education: How Greenwich Village Transformed Eleanor Roosevelt

“The giving of love is an education in itself.”. It was in Greenwich Village that Eleanor Roosevelt became the strong woman that we now know. From 1920 until the end of her life in 1962, she was actively connected to the political and social mix of the neighborhood. Paradoxically, her early years in the Village helped her gain the strength in her political convictions and in her personal confidence that would be essential to lifting Franklin to the presidency, even as their increasingly difficult marriage drove her to seek friendship and stimulation elsewhere—particularly in the Village. One might even legitimately wonder if FDR ever would have become president were it not for Eleanor’s ongoing and transformative experiences in the Village.

Eleanor Roosevelt: First Lady of the World

At 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 31 in the St. Peter Public Library, an Eleanor Roosevelt impersonator will share with the audience her tragedies and triumphs. The event is free. Born into the opulent wealth of America’s “Golden Age” she would grow from the shy, homely orphan into a confident, driven woman. Strengthened by personal tragedy, she would emerge as a champion of civil rights, author, and stateswoman. Eleanor has been characterized by many as the country's most respected First Lady. She is best summed up by President Harry S. Truman, who dubbed her “The First Lady of the World.”
