  • Description
    Eleanor Roosevelt Memorial

    A statue honoring Eleanor Roosevelt – an activist, humanitarian, diplomat, and the 32nd First Lady of the US.

    The monument, designed by Bruce Kelly and David Varnell and sculptured by Penelope Jencks, is the first to commemorate an American president’s wife and was one of few public statues of American women in New York City when it was dedicated in 1996. Hillary Clinton gave the keynote speech at the dedication ceremony, as a First Lady.

    Surrounding the bronze statue, there is a granite pavement featuring a summary of Roosevelt’s achievements, as well as a quotation from her UN speech promoting universal social justice and human rights.
