Google Maps Street View Virtual Tour Of Roosevelt Island FDR Four Freedoms Park



According to the FDR Four Freedoms Park:

... we celebrate the third anniversary of the opening of the Park with some exciting news: Four Freedoms Park can now be explored from the comfort of your home on Google Maps Street View!

This exciting news is the culmination of an 8-month process to create a virtual tour of the memorial. The Park applied to be part of Street View in February, and in August, a Google Trekker Operator visited the Park to capture thousands of panoramic images.

Shooting on foot and from the stern of Captain Tony DiLernia's Rocket Charter boat, the Trekker wore a large 50 lbs backpack fitted with a special camera rig consisting of 15 cameras. Incredibly, the cameras are able to capture a frame every two seconds! During his two-day visit to the Park, the Trekker was tasked with photographing the Park as a visitor might experience it, so that every detail, from cobblestone to tree to engraving can be viewed from all angles...
