In Joseph Persico’s book “Franklin and Lucy”, he indicates that FDR made over trips from Washington to his (mother’s) home in Hyde Park, New York while President. Since he would have come up from D.C. on the Pennsylvania route, where was the connection made to the New York Central to ge.

In Franklin and Lucy, historian Joseph E. Persico, the author of a previous book on FDR and World War II espionage (Ro osevelt's Secret War), is able to highlight their close friendship with the help of letters from FDR found in by Rutherfurd's grandchildren.

The letters and other evidence, including phone logs, show that loving contact. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was arguably the greatest figure of the twentieth century.

In it, he tells Lucy that her daughter is a delightful child and all that he expected. In fact, much of the correspondence between FDR and Lucy concerned their children and grandchildren.
