Williamsburg’s monument to its fallen soldiers who fought in WWI is found where Metropolitan Avenue and Humboldt Street cross. It’s called Memorial Gore, and the obelisk in the center lists the names of those who gave their lives in the brief time America was in this war.  For the past three years St. Nicks Alliance has organized a morning memorial on Armistice Day with local scouts, Divine Mercy Parish, Assembly Member Joseph Lentol, and the Concerned Citizens of Withers Street.
