Astoria Boulevard Concrete Triangle
A sad bit of property, this park is little more than a traffic island situated next to busy Astoria Boulevard. Sometime around 2011, the park lost its small trees, leaving only one surviving tree and four other square patches of grass amidst the concrete where other trees used to stand. Even more depressing, there are now 4x4 wooden posts in the patches of grass with a small Parks Department logo attached, marking where trees used to be planted as far back as the 1950s.
