NYS Parks, Recreation, Historic Preservation $1 Million Project Will Add Ramp, Renovate ADA Compliant Pathways

Park Remains Open During Construction

The state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announced today work will start on a $1 million project to enhance disability access at Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park in New York City.

Starting next week and concluding in late spring, work will include a new incline platform lift at the granite Grand Stairway and renovation of two aggregate stone pathways to enhance accessibility.

“This project will ensure that all New Yorkers can enjoy equal access to this important memorial to a New Yorker who was one of our greatest leaders,” said State Parks Commissioner Erik Kulleseid. “At Parks, we value doing what is needed so that our Parks and historic sites are open to all.”

The project is supported by a $250,000 allocation from New York City Council Member Mark Levine and $250,000 grant from State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright, with the balance supported by NY Works.

They are integral and culturally significant parts of small town life. Located, metaphorically, in the heart of town, these gathering places have historically been sites for markets, political rallies, entertainment and music. Around them, you will often find thriving shops and restaurants. And emanating from them, you can often feel the very pulse of the community. Exemplifying these traits and more, Corning’s Centerway Square has been voted Best Public Square in the country as part of USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice travel awards for 2021.
