“The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” This famous sentence contains every letter of the alphabet, and is used by companies worldwide to demonstrate font types. It is an example of a pangram, a sentence that uses the whole alphabet. Quick Brown Fox Triangle is home, appropriately, to a statue of a brown fox. The sitting area, tucked behind the wall of the Long Island Expressway, offers visitors shaded benches and a touch of green.

Quick Brown Fox Triangle is located in Maspeth, Queens. Maspeth derives its name from that of an Indian tribe, the Mespat, who inhabited the region at the head of Newtown Creek. The neighborhood is in the middle of Queens, and is surrounded on three sides by cemeteries: Mt. Olivet Lutheran Cemetery, Calvary Cemetery, Linden Hill Cemetery, New Calvary Cemetery, and Mt. Zion Cemetery.
