This park honors John J. Carty (1909-1970), a native of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn who lived his life only five blocks away and dedicated himself to New York City government for 32 years.

Born in Bay Ridge, Carty graduated from St. Francis College in Downtown Brooklyn. After college, Carty taught English and Government at Bishop Laughlin Memorial High School where he also coached the baseball and swimming teams. In 1938, Carty left his position as a teacher to join city government with the Municipal Civil Service Commission. After his 1952 appointment to the Bureau of Budget, he spent the next ten years developing his budgetary knowledge and learning the various technicalities of city budgetary allocation.
