January Record Set, Four Freedoms Park Surpasses 100K for Month


In a surprising role change, Roosevelt Island’s Four Freedoms Park set an attendance record in January as 100,115 people passed its gate.

Pinning down reasons is hard, but there’s no question the park’s serenity, its reputation as a mid-city refuge played a part.

While discussing tentative plans for reopening this year, executive director Howard Axel mentioned the surprising news. Four Freedoms Park’s record attendance reflects its emerging role in community life, and the next year may see more of the same.
