Eleanor Roosevelt on Riverside Drive


On and off from 1988 to 1996 the sculptor, Penelope Jencks, worked to create the sculpture of Eleanor Roosevelt at the corner of 72nd Street and Riverside Drive. This is a memoir of that endeavor, the high points as well as the low. It was written over a period of fifteen years, starting in 1998, two years after the installation, and much of it is taken from the journals she kept while working on the sculpture.
