Four Freedoms Park

Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park is memorial dedicated to the former President. It is located on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island in New York City, it is the last work of the late Louis I. Kahn, an architect of the 20th century.

 

The Park celebrates the Four Freedoms, as pronounced in President Roosevelt's famous January 6, 1941 State of the Union speech. He proposed four fundamental freedoms that people "everywhere in the world" ought to enjoy:

  1. Freedom of speech

  2. Freedom of worship

  3. Freedom from want

  4. Freedom from fear
