1891 - 1960
This memorial is dedicated to the memory of those immigrants who settled this area at the turn of the twentieth century.

The 'Greenbush' site, known as the Triangle area, was a unique neighborhood composed of fourteen homogeneous ethnic groups. The community, rich in cultural and social traditions, stood unequaled as a neighborhood of harmony and cooperation. This unusual combination of creeds and cultures was destroyed and dispersed by the urban renewal in 1960.
