This park gets its name from the D’Auria-Murphy American Legion Post in the Belmont section of the Bronx. By 1933, nearby Arthur Avenue had become Belmont's principal thoroughfare and the site of a flourishing open-air market with pushcart vendors offering various Italian delicacies. For New Yorkers, the name Arthur Avenue still conjures up the smell of freshly baked Italian bread, aromatic delicatessens with cheeses and sausages in the windows.
