This parkland is located on Sutter Avenue, a roadway named in honor of former Brooklyn Democratic Leader Peter D. Sutter. As a member of the Democratic Party, Sutter was part of an organization that dominated New York politics for much of the 19th and 20th centuries. The party came into existence in the early 19th century after the fall of the Federalist Party from national prominence. The Democrats replaced the Federalists as the main rival of the Jeffersonian Republicans in national politics and helped form the two party system in the United States. The Democratic Party in both New York City and State played an important role in the development of the national party, in part through the efforts of New York Governor and eighth President Martin Van Buren (1782-1862).
