New Yorkers now have one more reason to check out one of the City’s hidden gems in the middle of the East River.
Free tours of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park on Roosevelt Island are now being offered.
Participants will be able to learn about Roosevelt's time in the Oval Office and about the people who built the park.
They’ll also get panoramic views of the Manhattan and Queens skylines.
"We get a lot of New Yorkers who say they've lived in the City 20 years and they've never been here and they're always so blown away when they do make it out," said Angela Stangenberg, Supervising Manager of Park Operation, Four Freedoms Park Conservancy.
The tours runThursday through Sunday at twelve thirty and three until the end of September. You can get there by driving, or taking the subway, tram or the ferry.
