A typical lean-n-rock dance that involves swinging your hand over your lower stomach while thrusting your pelvis and legs forward in one swift motion.
Done correctly, this dance can offer much sex appeal whether male or female.
Also made popular by many southern rappers
PLP - "Watch me crank dat Roosevelt".
Die Hard - "All my niggas do the Roosevelt"
-Just assume the dancing stance and put you hands across your belt, swing your legs just like you're Elvis and it's called the Roosevelt.
-Todd: Man, when a girl does the Roosevelt, you can automatically tell if she is any good in the sheets or not.
Joe: Got that right...lets go run train.
One of the few ghettos that got hit hard in Long Island,New York. Mostly inhabited by African Americans and Hispanics. One of the few towns on Long Island that can be considered "Hoods".I have walked through this neighborhood...I don't like to illustrate my own imagination with someone elses...the neighborhood is mostly houses,some public housing can be found on the west side of the neighborhood,Walking down hempstead tpke you see alot of African Americans. Take a walk down one of the sideblocks, what you will 50% most likely see on each block are boarded up houses,urban Blight,although there are some very nice well-moderate kept houses. It is very populated although,which keeps the "isolated areas" off guard...many mexican,puerto rican,el salvadorean,african american gangs flashing there colors...it is just like any other poor,drug infested area. As long as you mind your own business,they should mind theres. Don't believe all the hype.
Flavor Flav and Howard Stern grew up in Roosevelt,New york.
Roosevelt is one of the few hoods on Long Island. The majority of the population is of course black, and then latino. It is home of Public Enemy & Dr. J. But it has the worst highschool on Long Island. If you don't beleive me look it up yourself. If you don't think it's hood just because it's on Long Island I dare you, go up to a Roosevelt nigga and say you're pussy and see what happens.

Man, did you see that dude lift up that car to save that other dude's life. That's Roosevelt!
A Roosevelt is a dimepiece
, a ten out of ten, a hot woman
. Comes from FDR being on the dime, and dimes being synonymous with a beautiful woman. Can be used loosely to describe any woman who is at least a 7.5, if agreed upon beforehand.

playa 2: "yeah dawg she's a roosevelt!"
A round, plushy cow that is perfect for hugging. He is round all over, always wears a smile, and is softer than a baby's bottom.
I had a bad day, but hugging Roosevelt made it all better!
