The FDR Memorial on the National Mall is the second FDR Memorial in Washington, DC. The first one was built just the way Roosevelt wanted: a marble block no larger than his desk. This memorial is a beautiful garden with statuary, fountains and placards in tribute to his ideas. "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself...." his iconic words are engraved on the wall. You can walk along the tidal basin and also see the Jefferson in the background. It is a beautiful spot for a picnic and an engagement session.
Tourists are always getting in the way!
