D'Onofrio Square

D'Onofrio Square [OpenStreetMap]

Named for Sergeant Salvatore F. D’Onofrio, who died on June 24, 1944, while serving in France during World War II. The city originally acquired the property which lies along White Plains Road from East 213th Street to East 216th Street in November 1900 for the purposes of road construction. The particular parcel from East 215th Street to East 216th Street was transferred to the Transit Authority in May 1984.
