Sobel Playground

This small park in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg is dedicated to the memory of Private Louis Sobel, a Brooklyn native and veteran of World War I. Sobel was killed in action at the Second Battle of the Marne on July 18, 1918. At the time of this park’s dedication on May 15, 1938, it was the first public space in New York City to be named for a Jewish war hero.
