The Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park is located in New York City at the southernmost point of Roosevelt Island, in the East River between Manhattan Island and Queens. The park was built in memory of US President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his Four Freedoms speech which he delivered in the State of the Union address in 1941, to rally the American people against the Axis threat. In his speech, Roosevelt outlined his vision for the world founded upon four essential human rights — freedom of speech and expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want and freedom from fear. These Four Freedoms has been incorporated in numerous works of art and monuments around the country.
