‘Tis pleasant, sure, to see one’s name in print” - Lord Byron

This park pays tribute to three pioneers in the printing field: Colonel Richard Morris Hoe (1812-1886), Johann Gutenburg (c1400-c1468), and Aldo Manuzio (1449-1515). All three men have had Bronx streets named in their honor that border Printers Park, Hoe Avenue, Aldus Street, Guttenberg Street (renamed East 165th Street in 1911).
