    Nice park. Cool neighborhood. Very sketchy people in park during day and night. Avoid going through it when it's dark. Lots of cool spots around it.

    Don't wear sandals/slippers when you go to the bathroom. Also try not to catch a disease as well. D:

    Relaxing park, a few courts, a pool I don't think anyone uses, and benches galore. I've been warned it's not so nice the later in the evening you get, but surrounded by shops and hot spots.

    Play ping-pong or watch dogs run around at the historic Tompkins Square Park. It’s the heart and soul of the East Village and Alphabet City.
