This triangle commemorates Arthur Stanley Egbert (1893-1918), a member of a prominent Staten Island family, who fought and died in World War I (1914-1918). Arthur Stanley Egbert was born on July 6, 1893 and lived at 1288 Richmond Avenue. Before entering the war, he worked as a conductor for the Richmond Light and Rail Road Company. Serving as a Seaman Second Class for the U.S. Navy, Egbert died on May 31, 1918, when the USS President Lincoln sank. This site is dedicated to him and to the people of Graniteville and Port Richmond who died in World War I. The site was named Egbert Square on April 16, 1929. Years later, Commissioner Stern renamed the site Egbert Triangle to better reflect its shape.
