Located at the intersection of Third and Franklin Avenues, Franklin Triangle has borne witness to the storied past of the South Bronx community. Franklin Avenue, the Triangle’s northern boundary and one of the oldest avenues in the borough, climbs northeast up a short yet steep hill. At the hill’s crest sits what was once the Franklin Avenue Armory, the first military facility in the borough. The park's thornless honeylocust tree provides passersby with ample shade throughout the year’s warmer months.
