"Tompkins Square Park is at the heart of New York City's East Village. It is now home to a beautiful dog run and several monuments, including the temperance fountain. The park has historically been the backdrop for much civil unrest and social change." -Maëlle
Tompkins Square Park is a 10.5-acre public park in the Alphabet City section of the East Village neighborhood in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. It is square in shape, and is bounded on the north by East 10th Street, on the east by Avenue B, on the south by East 7th Street, and on the west by Avenue A. St. Marks Place abuts the park to the west.
