Tompkins Square Park

Throughout the last century, Tompkins Square Park has been a haven and hub for East Village residents, from revolutionaries of the past to revelers of today. And with a central location and easy access to all of the area’s culinary and cultural offerings, it’s easy to see why this park is a staple of an East Villager’s daily life. When the weather is warm, pick a spot on a bench to people-watch. Channel the park’s artistic past and take a stab at writing some poetry, or try your hand at painting. If creative endeavors aren’t your thing, Tompkins Square Park offers handball and basketball courts where you can burn some calories with your fellow East Villagers. Even your pets can get in on the fun, thanks to fenced-in dog runs and off-leash hours in certain areas of the park.

Stuyvesant Square Park

For a quick escape to the country without going far from home, head over to Stuyvesant Square Park — just 10 minutes from EVGB. This strip of well-manicured greenery is a pastoral getaway along Second Avenue. Take in the expertly manicured flower beds full of lilies, iris, roses, and snapdragons that add bursts of color to the verdant surroundings. If you want to try out your green thumb and become a deeper part of the community, Stuyvesant Square Park also has volunteer gardeing opportunities. Or, you can just relax and let the sounds of the city fade away as you listen to the bubbling of the park’s centerpiece fountain.

The Outdoors at Home

If you’d like to experience the outdoors at home, head to EVGB’s 19,000-square-foot rooftop. With grills, fitness areas, bocce courts, and a putting green, it’s a landscaped oasis where residents can dine, unwind, and play any time.
