Devanney Triangle is in the historic central Bronx neighborhood of Tremont, which includes the smaller neighborhoods of Claremont, Mount Eden, and Mount Hope. On February 1, 1888, the City of New York acquired the land that is now Devanney Triangle as a street by condemnation. Bounded by Burnside Avenue and Grand Concourse, Devanney Triangle opened as a small sitting park with a series of walkways, 12 benches, and 15 decorative trees and greenery, encompassed by a pipe rail fence.
