A Message From Four Freedoms Park
Conservancy Leadership
We are happy to present Four Freedoms Park
Conservancy’s 2017 & 2018 yearbook, and to
share with you moments from the past two years
that highlight our mission and our goals. More
than a decade ago, we began building Louis
Kahn’s Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms
State Park on Roosevelt Island, and we thank you,
sincerely, for your support and for believing that
dream was possible. Since the Park opened in
October 2012, we have sought to preserve and
program this architectural masterpiece, and now,
just six years later, we are pleased to share with
you the many ways more than 1,000,000 visitors Barbara Shattuck Kohn, Chair
have brought this space to life.

Not too long ago when we became Roosevelt
Island’s newest resident, the architecture critic
Michael Kimmelman wrote in the New York Times
that the Park gave New York “nothing less than a
new spiritual heart.” For many visitors, the Park is
just that: a respite from a city that operates at an
unrelenting pace, a place of quiet contemplation
and solitude, and a meaningful public space for
civic dialogue. We are thankful to call Roosevelt
Island and New York our home, to partner with the
New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and
Historic Preservation, and to welcome Cornell
Tech, a world-class graduate campus dedicated Howard Axel, CEO
to academics and research for the digital age, to
our Roosevelt Island neighborhood. sharing our dream for this Park that stands as
a beacon for the four freedoms and a vital

2 Four Freedoms Park Conservancy
A Message from New York State
Parks Commissioner Rose Harvey
On behalf of New York State, I congratulate Four
Freedoms Park Conservancy for another outstanding year
honoring the profound legacy of President Franklin D.
Roosevelt. New York is fortunate to have the committed
and imaginative leadership of the Conservancy to manage
this special and iconic state park, which symbolizes and
reminds us of America’s fundamental values: freedom of
speech & expression, freedom of religion, freedom from
want, and freedom from fear.

Congratulations as well on surpassing one million visitors.
The programs are amazing and enlightening. School
education programs have almost doubled over the last few
years, and we believe they have much room for growth.
Visitors come away inspired by the Park’s hopeful
message as well as its architecture and stunning views of
New York City. Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State
Park shows us how people’s lives are enriched by art,
beauty, and discovery – and encouraging public access to
these things is a noble effort.

Particularly in this sad era of political and social
polarization, Four Freedoms State Park is one of our most
important state parks – a place everyone should visit to
see, understand and remember the sacrifice that our
country, communities and individual Americans have given
to honor these values, in the most turbulent of times. Parks
bring us together in a way few other social institutions do.
Our parks are the great gathering places, for all colors, all
creeds, all religions, all countries. On any given day, walk
around FDR Four Freedoms State Park or any other state
park and enjoy the diversity and rich social fabric of so
many cultures together.

We at the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic
Preservation are honored to include Louis Kahn’s
architectural masterpiece into our system, and we look
forward to continuing to work with the Conservancy to
care for this special place. Thank you again for helping
create the kind of world President Franklin D. Roosevelt
envisioned.

Board Spotlight: Q&A with Eduardo Jany
Eduardo Jany directs security operations for Bloomberg in the Americas. He has served in law enforcement with 26 years of police
service in Florida, Minnesota, and Washington State, and in the military with 33 years of combined service in the Army and Marine
Corps. Eduardo lives on Roosevelt Island and has been a Four Freedoms Park Conservancy board member since 2017.

Having been in the military and in law enforcement I
did have the opportunity to travel and move about
quite a bit. What I have learned in those years is that
as much as we may speak or dress a bit differently we
are all really quite similar in our hopes and aspirations.
We all value freedom; we value time with our families,
being able to move about without restriction, and
express ourselves freely without fear. Unfortunately
there are elements that are pulling the country to
extremes. I can't recall any time in my life that our
politicians have been so vitriolic and that hurts us. We
really do need to listen, pay attention to facts, to learn
from one another, to read, to be culturally attuned and
informed.

On your website, you quote John F. Kennedy and
Martin Luther King. Have these two leaders
informed your career and ideology? Absolutely. The

Inspiring the Next Generation
Through FDR's Four Freedoms

Exploring FDR’s vision of “a world founded upon four essential human
freedoms”: freedom of speech & expression, freedom of worship, freedom
from want, and freedom from fear

Conservancy educators offer multiple dialogue-based programs for school groups in
grades 2-12, encouraging students to value their own voices and understand the
complex political and historical forces that shape their lives. Field trips meet New York
City and New York State learning standards and the Common Core through deep
observation, primary source learning, and persuasive writing. In addition, the
Conservancy brings the four freedoms to NYC classrooms with intensive residencies,
and teaches educators about the four freedoms through professional development
workshops at the Park. Each summer, the Conservancy hosts high school interns in
collaboration with Studio in a School to create film and social media content informed by
the four freedoms.

Inspiring Students with FDR's Four Freedoms

Here's what NYC
school teachers from
Queens’ District 30
are saying about our
education
programs...

“Civics education has
been brought to the
forefront of the NYC
curriculum, so all of the
info and resources are
relevant. The resources
really helped me better
understand how relevant
these issues are to our
present day.”

“The educators are
enthusiastic – the kids
definitely need more
people like this.”

“The facilitators were well
prepared, interesting, and
provided a lot of
information. Good PD.
Highly recommended.”

Engaging with the Four Freedoms Through Media

Each summer, the
Conservancy hosts NYC
high school interns, in
collaboration with Studio

media project inspired by
the four freedoms.

The interns explore the
four freedoms through
social media and videos,
interviewing elder New
Yorkers, leading school
groups, and screening
their work.
