Glendale Veterans Triangle
A gift of the people of Glendale, this war memorial, dedicated in 1921, honors 21 Glendale residents who died in combat during World War I. Sculptor Anton Schaaf (1869-1943) created the bronze bas-relief of a female figure holding a torch in her hand set within a granite stele designed by the architectural firm of Helmle and Corbett. Schaaf also collaborated with Helmle and Corbett on the Ridgewood War Memorial in Queens.
