  • The park is located in Roosevelt Island and you can get there by subway or tram. It’s Franklin Roosevelt’s Memorial. It’s free to get to the park and it’s suggested to make a donation. Very nice views...  more »
  • We used the cable car instead of the Metro (tickets cost the same and you can pay with a Metrocard) to get to Roosevelt Island. The walk along the river deserves a great deal and worth the drive to the southern tip of the island passing the ruins of the old hospital to enter the Four Freedom Park where there is a monument to Roosevelt. Manhattan view from here is just superb! You will have in front of the towering UN building and the skyline of the East Side around to photograph!

  • This memorial to FDR at the tip of Roosevelt Island is that rare NYC treat that no one knows about. And it is fun to get to as you can take the Roosevelt Island Tram from the 59th Street Bridge. When ...  more »

  • Peaceful and scenic. This is a great local get away spot and only one stop from Manhattan. Take the tram for a nice aerial view of NYC. If you walk along the west side of island heading north, you will see a few Tom Otterness sculptures in the water. The Cornell Technology campus is also on the island. Stunning modern architecture and there is a nice Cafe too.
  • The park is kept extremely clean, there was no litter at all! But beware of the geese, and the geese poop that cover some sections of the path and large sections of grassy areas. The views on both sides of the island are amazing! If you come in early 2018, you can still see the awesome smallpox hospital ruins from 1800s, before it's rebuilt into a memorial building! Nature, history, and a sea breeze just a sky tram ride away! If you come in winter, it's very chilly especially with wind.
  • Beautiful, awe inspiring location almost but thankfully not quite ruined by this ugly cold stone architectural mistake. Those who remember the wild natural space this built over will have their hearts heartbroken, but the meditational wonder of this spot in the middle of, but isolated from the City, still transcends the foolish, tone deaf development. Hopefully someday they'll tear this abomination down. The wild space was a better monument to FDR's ideals anyway.
  • One of the best places I visited in NYC. Freedom is the most important thing in our lives... Highly recommend spending some time here thinking about what this life is all about.
  • A fine tribute to Roosevelt's ideals. Simple, almost stark, on design, but effective in its simplicity. Beautiful views of Manhattan.
