Grab your cameras: New York City’s largest Pride flag is at FDR Four Freedoms State Park, celebrating World Pride in NYC!

From Friday, June 14 to Sunday, June 30, the Park’s monumental staircase will transform into a massive Pride flag, sponsored by Bloomberg, to celebrate the progress that’s been made over the past 50 years, and to shine a light on the LGBTQ community’s continued fight for the universal human rights articulated in President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms Speech: freedom of speech & expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

Located on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island in New York City, in the East River between Manhattan and Queens, the Park is the first memorial dedicated to the former President in his home state of New York.
