The FDR Four Freedoms Park tweets:
and adds:
The AiA and Four Freedoms Park Conservancy will jointly offer a special guided boat tour around Roosevelt Island. The tour will focus on Four Freedoms Park and the past, present, and future of Roosevelt Island. Stephen Martin, Conservancy Director of Design and Planning, will chronicle the fascinating and painstaking team effort that led to the faithful 2012 completion of Louis Kahn’s 1973 design for the FDR Four Freedoms Park located at the island’s Southern tip. Specific design goals and construction details of this uncompromising memorial will be clearly identified and discussed.
It's a two hour tour starting at 1:30 with the boat departing from the Chelsea Piers. Cost is $58 per person. More information here.

Here's a boat ride I took in 2013 on the Hudson and East River.

It's a great way to see the NYC waterfront.
