On Saturday, September 23rd, Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park welcomed visitors for a day of free events to celebrate the beginning of fall, in recognition of the United Nations General Assembly and International Peace Day, and in collaboration with Roosevelt Island’s 2017 Fall for Arts Festival. Events included a kite-making workshop, storytime hosted by the Roosevelt Island library, and a conversation with real life human rights heroes.
Even though it may be hard to believe, summer is now officially over, which means our fall field trip season is about to begin! The Education Department is excited to welcome 1,000s of students from NYC and around the world out to the Park in order to promote the four freedoms and foster informed civic engagement amongst the next generation.
