  • On unforgettable moment we just have New Village Music Festival. Great shows and sound system. Bathrooms were available all the time. Art all over..Happy entire families gathering all over the park. Long live Tompkins Square Park.
  • Lovely city park with a variety of options for recreation. Two dog parks, basketball courts, strolling paths, nice plantings. October is the Annual Halloween Dog Parade. Not to be missed. Less appealing after dark.
