Let Me Stay and Play

Tompkins Square Park does not have a history of bringing the people of the East village together or certainly not the type you’d want to play game of ping pong with. But Alan Good, former dancer and founder of Henge is looking to change all that.

Henge recently installed a cement ping pong table to encourage physical activity between park goers. “You set something up and watch what happens,” Good states. “It’s about how people pause and get value out of interacting with each other.” No paddles or balls? No worries, both are provided at a neighboring restaurant.
