Long before his presidency, Theodore Roosevelt was a sickly child–turned–Dakota Territory cowboy who honed a reputation as a corruption-busting police commissioner in Gilded Age New York City. New-York Historical partners Tom Meyers and Greg Young from the Bowery Boys: New York City History podcast stop by the Museum for a talk about the young TR as he tried to straighten out a city full of crooks. How did New York shape the future president?
