We're getting an early start in celebrating Presidents Day.

On Monday February 17th we celebrate the birthdays of two of the most famous US Presidents. George Washington turns 282 this month, and honest Abe turns 205. You might not know it, but both presidents have historical roots right here in New York City. 

On this week's Cityscape, we’re celebrating Presidents Day by exploring moments of presidential history that took place in our own backyard.
