La Guardia Playground is named for Mayor La Guardia, who was the 99th Mayor of the City of New York. As mayor, La Guardia unified the public transit system, consolidated and centralized much of the city government, cracked down on illegal gambling, and constructed numerous bridges and parks. With Robert Moses as his Parks Commissioner, he embarked on an unprecedented expansion of the New York City park system throughout the 1930s and early 1940s, and oversaw the building of health clinics, recreational facilities, and the airport that today bears his name
