Park located in the East Village that was the scene of a big uprising in 1991 when a decision was made to evict the park's homeless in order to renovate; today, the park is pretty and quiet, but is still home to many who have no where else to go.

Nice park used mainly by people with dogs at the nicely situated dog playground. We enjoyed the park and the vibe. Only problem is the many (MANY) rats running around everywhere.

The park is very pretty in the spring. It's not huge, but we still enjoyed walking around and seeing the different flower gardens.

There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses

students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighborhood feel that you can still

shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
