"Tompkins Square Park (Ave A between 7th and 10th Sts; 212-274-1111, nyc.gov/parks), but you have to be kind of...careful there. The guys are very friendly."---Euphrosini Saliaris, 26, social media correspondent, East Village

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

What was once a hotbed of crime and drugs has transformed in the past decade into the crown jewel of the East Village. The 10.5-acre green space underwent a $2.1 million renovation in the ’90s, and the result is a cleaner, greener park—one that's especially dog-friendly, with fenced-off areas for pooches big and small, and three bone-shaped doggy swimming pools. The park also contains several monuments, including an elm tree that serves as a memorial to Hare Krishnas.
