Bounded by Fort Hamilton Parkway, New Utrecht, 11th Avenue, and 46th Street in the Borough Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, Alben Triangle is named for Bud H. Alben, a Brooklyn resident who was killed in World War I (1914-1918). Although little is known about Alben, this parcel of land bears a flagpole with a memorial plaque at its base, presented by the Veterans of Foreign Wars which honors the Borough Park soldiers who died in World War I. As a public place under the auspices of the Brooklyn Borough President’s office, the Bud H. Alben VFW Post #1436 volunteered to maintain the property until 1935 when it was transferred to Parks jurisdiction.
