Bobby Kennedy had established residency in New York after stepping down as attorney general to launch his 1964 bid to become the state's Democratic representative in the U. John and Caroline would run and fling themselves at their uncle as soon as he stepped inside the door, clamoring for his attention.
Bobby would toss John into the air and catch him, then get down on the floor to play.
“When they returned, they looked as chummy and relaxed as a pair of Cheshire cats,” according to Schlesinger * At the Kennedys’ Palm Beach estate during Christmas 1964, socialite Mary Harrington saw Jackie sunbathing topless, with Bobby kneeling at her side.
With eight kids of his own under the age of thirteen, Bobby stepped easily into the role of surrogate father for John and Caroline, and they worshipped him. Threatening to tell Uncle Bobby about any misbehavior was like telling the kids Santa Claus was going to find out.
In addition to his Manhattan apartment, which was close to his campaign headquarters in Midtown, Bobby had leased a twenty-five-room hilltop mansion as a weekend retreat in Glen Cove, on the northern shore of Long Island.
It was a great place for the kids to play with all their cousins on the weekend, and Madam enjoyed riding horses there. Ethel was that way with sailing, and Joan Kennedy, Ted's wife, had the piano.
On the surface, at least, Madam struck me as more like her brother-in-law than her sisters-in-law, though. Both had magnetic personalities, but then you would come to find out they were actually shy by nature.
Family was never far away, and both her sister, Lee, and various Kennedy in-laws visited frequently.
