It’s all about learning from, and interacting with, people. All of which can now be done by simply picking up a paddle and playing ping-pong.
The new ping-pong table in Tompkins Square Park was created in the spirit of encouraging people to get physical, and to socialize with each other and their surroundings.
Allen Good, 51, founder and president of Henge Tables, wanted to create something solid that residents could claim as their own; something permanent that could bring people from different backgrounds together.
“It’s about how people pause and get value out of interacting with each other,” says Good.
