Honoree: Frank P. LoCicero (1918-1997) was a commercial artist. At 17, he had been the youngest person to have a sculpture exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 1950, he and his wife bought a home in Bellerose and he became active in the Bellerose Hillside Civic Association. Later, as its president, he led successful campaigns against the siting of a prison and a sanitation garage at the former Creedmore Psychiatric Center. A memorial to him is in this triangle.
