'Roosevelt Island' by Candia Peterson LRPS

"Roosevelt island is a relatively unknown part of New York, a tiny sliver of land in the East River. Its southern tip has become a wonderful memorial to FDR, the Four Freedoms Park, designed by Louis Kahn in 1973. It is a perfect composition of landscaping and minimilist architecture against the backdrop of Manhattan."
