"I see one-third of a nation ill-housed, ill-clad, ill-nourished," was a statement made by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt during his second inaugural presidential address and is a statement featured prominently on one of the red granite walls of the Roosevelt memorial. Below that statement stands this sculpture by George Segal titled, "Breadline."
Behind the "breadline" and inscribed on the wall is the continuation of the above-referenced inaugural address where Roosevelt went on to say, "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."
