John F. Kennedy was born as the second child of his parents (he had a two-years-older brother Joe, who was killed during World War II).

John F. Kennedy was born in a suburb of the U.S. city of Boston, at 83 Beals Street, Brookline, where his parents owned a house.

The house where he was born still “exists” today, and is known as the John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site.

Visitors can see his bed, located in his parents’ bedroom (where he was born), and a cradle used by the Kennedy family.

The future president was born on this day at 3 PM, and all clocks in the house today are stopped at that time.
