Fidelity Triangle

This triangle is a tribute to those brave soldiers who fought and died in World War I. For the 1921 opening of the park, the Knights of Columbus Fidelity Council presented a German cannon from the war to the City of New York, which was displayed in this park. The Board of Alderman (predecessor to the City Council) named the park to honor those who paid the supreme sacrifice for their country, and for the Fidelity Council’s commemorative symbol.

Fidelity Triangle, bounded by Engert and Meeker Avenues and Monitor Street, is a small traffic triangle with three London planetrees (Platanus x acerifolia) and seven World’s Fair benches. The middle is planted with shrubs. Mayor Giuliani provided $28,171 in 2000 for site repairs. The most notable feature of the triangle, a memorial stone, is dedicated by the Knights of Columbus: “In memoriam William Gall P.C.K. For devoted service to Fidelity Council 495 K of C 1870-1950.”
