The excellent Untapped New York got a hardhat tour of Four Freedoms Park, the Franklin D. Roosevelt memorial on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island that was first designed by Louis Kahn 40 years ago. (It finally broke ground last year, somewhat controversially.) Above is "The Room," the granite structure near where the large FDR statue will one day go. Untapped New York also took in some of the nearby sights, and we couldn't resist tossing up a shot of the creepy Smallpox Hospital ruins.
