NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

This triangle is a tribute to those brave soldiers who fought and died in World War I. For the 1921 opening of the park, the Knights of Columbus Fidelity Council presented a German cannon from the war to the City of New York, which was displayed in this park. The Board of Alderman (predecessor to the City Council) named the park to honor those who paid the supreme sacrifice for their country, and for the Fidelity Council’s commemorative symbol.

World War I (1914-1918), which President Woodrow T. Wilson (1856-1924) called “the war to end all wars,” cost a total of 8,538,315 lives, with 364,800 from the United States, including 13,956 from New York State and 7,455 from New York City.
