President John F. Kennedy in New York City: See pictures

President John F. Kennedy has a long history with New York.

Kennedy, who was gunned down on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas, spent a good deal of time in the Big Apple. He lived in both Riverdale and Bronxville as a child. Later, as president, he would stay at the Carlyle Hotel when he visited.

The beloved president even has a New York City airport named after him.
