Derosa–O'Boyle Triangle

Derosa–O'Boyle Triangle [OpenStreetMap]

This small triangle and seating area is named for William Anthony DeRosa and Andrew O’Boyle, two Throgs Neck natives who were killed during World War II. Three large trees provide shade to the park's benches and a nearby bus stop. A stone memorial in the park is dedicated to all Throgs Neck residents who have served in the armed forces.

A very small triangle/plaza at Dewey Avenue, East Tremont Avenue, and Edison Avenue in the Bronx
