Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park
At the southernmost point of Roosevelt Island, this sculpture park that’s a memorial to FDR will clear your head. With towering trees overhead and open views across the East River, it almost feels like you’re moving forward when the tide rushes toward you. The overall shape of the park resembles the Masonic symbol on the US dollar bill. In the morning, before the afternoon barbecue crowd shows up, the park has a more meditative feel.
Used the TRAM with your metrocard and enjoy a fun moment from Manhattan to Roosevelt Island, walk to the south and take one of the best shoots in the city at 4 Freedoms Park State a beautiful memorial designed by the famous architect Louis Kahn
It is the nicest park in NYC. Take the Roosevelt Island Tram at 59th street and 2nd avenue up and over the east river to Roosevelt Island.
The architect Louis Kahn designed a monument for this location back in the 60's, and it was posthumously built several years ago. Take the tram to Roosevelt island to enjoy this on on a nice day, the views are fantastic.
