FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT FOUR FREEDOMS PARK, Roosevelt Island (fdrfourfreedomspark.org): Legendary architect Louis Kahn (1901-1974) had just completed the drawings for this memorial when he died. It took almost 40 years to realize, but the memorial and the stunning small park that contains it were completed last fall. (July 7, 2013)(Credit: Yana Paskova)

Pocket parks in NYC

It's easy to rhapsodize about Central Park and Prospect Park, as their size commands attention. But sometimes New York City's smaller green spaces can get overlooked. With more than 1,700 parks dotting the city limits, there are plenty of small and beautiful options to surprise you. --TED LOOS, Special to Newsday
