Images from the 4th of July fireworks organized every year in Manhattan, sponsored by Macy’s since 1976, seen from Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island. More than 3000 people waited few hours for the event to start on a rainy evening.
Today, Roosevelt Island hosted the 3rd edition of the annual Cherry Tree festival. I was there for just a few minutes at the end of the day, and here are a few images.
Last month, a new park was opened in New York City. It is a memorial dedicated to president Franklin D Roosevelt, build on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island, after the plans of architect Louis I Kahn. The park was named Four Freedoms Park and this link will give you all the information you want about it. As a Roosevelt Island resident I can share that building the park on the island generated a lot of heated debates about the design, environment, Manhattan views, etc. Yesterday I finally saw it and I took the images below. Curious to see your feedback about the park, do you like it?
