This park honors Daniel A. Haggerty (1884-1965), a Queens public servant for 18 years. Born in Brooklyn on September 13, 1884, Haggerty left school, moved to Queens, and began working for the Charles H. Eddy advertising agency. He was employed there for 43 years, eventually becoming the firm’s treasurer. While at the Eddy firm, Haggerty was elected Democratic leader of the Ninth Assembly in central Queens, and served as such for 35 years. In the early 1940s, Haggerty retired from the advertising agency and entered the Queens political arena full time.
