New York has a new state park! It wraps the southernmost tip of Roosevelt Island, (once Welfare Island), and it features a giant bust of the visionary president sculpted by my great step grandfather, Jo Davidson.
It gave me goosebumps to see the head so well placed. What a wonderful thing for Jo.
The people at the Kahn designed park, even on a cloudy day, enjoy the spot.
The views of the city were fascinating, and the atmosphere was of respectful reverie.
I will be brief: "So glad to have been there."
