Description

“This playground, formerly La Guardia Houses Park, refers to the popular nickname of New York City mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia (1882-1947), Little Flower. The nickname is a literal translation of the Italian mayor’s first name and an allusion to his small physical stature of 5 feet 2 inches.” It was completed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA).” It is also the site of Jo Davidson’s bust of LaGuardia.
