Visit New York City’s Rainbow Pride Steps on Roosevelt Island

June 15, 2019 - June 30, 2019

Pride Steps

The display being seen as New York City’s largest rainbow pride flag is set to be unveiled on the staircase of Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island. The 12 x 100 foot steps, meant to honor the LGBTQ+ community, will be opened during a “Ascend with Pride” ceremony on June 15 during World Pride event.

Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt’s great-granddaughter Julia Ireland said that this display is also a fitting tribute to her family’s legacy of advocacy and inclusivity.

“Our concept of human rights is always evolving; the idea of freedom is not static,” Ireland wrote in a blog post. “Part of the park’s mission in commemorating and celebrating those freedoms is to educate current and future generations and to inspire them to re-define and re-imagine those concepts for themselves.”

Make sure to stop by to bask in the impressive scene yourself, remember the history associated with it – and definitely take some great commemorative photos with the rainbow pride steps!
