Chief Dennis L. Devlin Park

Chief Dennis L. Devlin Park [OpenStreetMap]

Devlin Park / Olmstead Triangle and the adjacent Avenue honors the Olmsteads. In 1895, the City of New York annexed the village, renaming the streets and avenues after early settlers so travelers would not confuse them with neighboring streets. Olmstead Avenue was renamed as part of this effort, as was adjacent Ellis Avenue.
