Urban Sketchers NYC - June 1, 2013

Got a great site selected for this Saturday - the newly opened  Franklin D. Roosevelt - Four Freedoms Park.  

It's located at the southernmost point on Roosevelt Island, designed by Louis Kahn in 1973 and completed forty years later.  It's said you really can't see NYC when you're in NYC.  Roosevelt Island has one of the most breathtaking views of the big apple.
