Will Anyone Really Call It the R.F.K. Bridge? – City Room – Metro – New York Times Blog

There’s still no monument in NYC to FDR, other than the highway. They should have something on Governors Island (besides a monument to doing nothing with it) like the “Walk of Fame” in the Bronx, designed by Stanford White (assassinated by a “madman”) where many of our cultural and historical icons can be thought about and remembered. Happy National Maritime Day! (started by FDR, celebrated on May 22, to commemorate the first steamship to cross the Atlantic, the Savannah built in NY/NJ, which left Savannah, Georgia that day for Liverpool, England. Later “unfitted” of steam, it sank in a storm off Fire Island).

Sorry that’s “Hall of Fame for Great Americans” (former NYU Bronx campus) and the “Walk of Fame” is modern.
