Councilman Eric Ulrich, Queens Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski and the Howard Beach Kiwanis Club dedicated a refurbished traffic triangle in the club's honor.

Those who have helped the Kiwanis Club of Howard Beach “serve the children of the world” through the years are now recognized with a public space dedicated in their honor.

Current Kiwanians joined Councilman Eric Ulrich and Queens Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski on Sept. 26 to dedicate the “Kiwanis Club of Howard Beach Memorial Triangle,” a small renovated greenspace located on the northbound side of Cross Bay Boulevard at the entrance to the eastbound Belt Parkway.

“This triangle will stand as a testament to the success and hard work of all the members of the Kiwanis Club of Howard Beach, both past and present,” Ulrich said. “I am proud to have been able to partner with the Kiwanis Club and the Parks Department to beautify this triangle as a gateway to the Howard Beach community.”

“Green traffic triangles beautify the city and help remind us all to stop and smell the roses,” Lewandowski added. “Though it’s small in size, this newest greenspace plays a big role in the community, and we’re grateful to our partners at the Howard Beach Kiwanis Club for volunteering their time and efforts to help with its upkeep.”

A chapter of Kiwanis International, the Howard Beach Kiwanis Club holds various functions dedicated to improving the lives of children both locally and across the globe, including fundraisers among its members. The club is also active in the community and sponsors events such as the Howard Beach Halloween Parade.
