FDR Library Supervisory Archivist Bob Clark visited the construction site of the FDR Four Freedoms Park on June 14th and brought back these photos.

The Park, located on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island in the East River, will be an open air park lined with trees and granite markers commemorating important events in the Roosevelt Administration.

It will culminate in a massive granite “Room” providing the most spectacular views of the United Nations building—a real tribute to one of FDR’s most important international legacies.
