Inscription. 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.
