FDR Four Freedoms Park

The Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park is a four-acre memorial to Franklin D. Roosevelt that celebrates the Four Freedoms he articulated in his 1941 State of the Union address.  It is located on the south end of Roosevelt Island which sits in the middle of the East River between Midtown Manhattan and Long Island City Queens and is bisected by the Queensboro Bridge.  The park is a beautiful, but its most striking feature is the Roosevelt Monument which was one of the last designs by Louis Kahn.  He was carrying the plans with him when he died in 1974.
