Monumental Beefs

Not everyone is happy about the new FDR Four Freedoms Park. Some Roosevelt Islanders think it was a boondoggle and land grab, and they are particularly peeved about a new wrought iron fence that has been erected around the Smallpox Hospital. One resident said the park "unequivocally and unapologetically over stepped" its boundaries with the fence, saying it blocks off part of South Point Park, and they demand its removal. [RI]
