One of the oldest parks in the section of Riverdale known as Fieldston, this property was acquired by the City through condemnation on December 30, 1882. The parkland remained nameless until March 29, 1940, when Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia (1882-1947) designated it Brust Square in honor of Corporal Charles Brust, a soldier who died in combat during World War I. (Commissioner Stern renamed the parkland Brust Park in 1997.) Though Corporal Brust was not a resident of this Riverdale neighborhood, he did live on Hull Avenue in the Bronx when word came that he was going overseas to fight for his country in the 105th Infantry. Corporal Brust was killed on August 30, 1918.
