The 1936 law naming this triangle states, “the purpose of this resolution is the designation of Veteran Memorial Park to pay tribute to the memory of those who rendered services during the period of national peril.” World War I, which President Woodrow T. Wilson called “the war to end all wars,” cost a total of 8,538,315 lives, 117,000 of which came from the United States, 13,956 from New York State and 7,455 from New York City. This triangle honors those who died in that war.
