Cpl Fischer Park

Cpl Fischer Park [OpenStreetMap]

This park honors a New Yorker who enlisted in the United States Army and served in the 75th Joint Assault Signal Company of the Army Air Corps during World War II (1939-1945), Corporal Irwin A. Fischer. The park land is undeveloped and appears to be inaccessible due to a fence around the property, but it adds a nice bit of green to the corner. Nearby Corporal Irwin Fischer Place was previously known as Highbridge Street, Hennessy Place, and briefly James R. Murphy Place.

A very small undeveloped area at Nelson Avenue at West 170th Street in the Bronx


Founded September 14, 1995 — 29 years ago
