Roosevelt Island’s Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park Dedicated

The Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, located on a four acre site at the southern tip of Roosevelt Island, was dedicated on October 17th, in a ceremony attended by, among others, former President Bill Clinton, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The memorial park, which was initially designed in 1973 by famed architect Louis I. Kahn, celebrates the “four freedoms” – speech, religion, and freedom from want and fear – which President Franklin Roosevelt set forth as universal human rights in his 1941 State of the Union address. Carter Ledyard represented Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation in connection with the development of this site as the Four Freedoms Park with counsels Barbara Brown and Christopher Rizzo taking the lead in drafting RIOC’s agreements, reviews and approvals for this important project.
