H. Jacob “Jack” Breininger (1894-1979), a local figure who devoted much time and effort to the betterment of his community, lived on nearby Lyman Street. Breininger created the Creedmoor Civic Association, which he presided over from 1936 until 1963, to raise awareness of local issues. He also served as a delegate to the 105th Precinct Community Council and to the Eastern Queens Civil Council, which he co-founded. Breininger created the civic association’s newsletter, The Creedmoor Civic News, which he edited for 40 years. He was also president of the Queens Village-Bellerose Kiwanis, a member of the American Legion for 59 years, and he played an important part in the construction of nearby Martin Van Buren High School in 1955.
