Ping Pong in Tomkins Square Park

By: Hana Kwon

Tompkins Square Park is no longer just a place to just stroll through the day or relax on a bench. A new ping-pong table has been installed in Tompkins Square Park dedicated to Harry Greenberg, former Tompkins Square Park manager.  The table, designed by Henge Tables, is created by concrete and is available for anyone who wants to stop by for a game of ping-pong.

The new ping-pong table not only stands as an art piece, but also brings the community together. Alan Good, the founder and president of Henge Tables said, “There are people playing in the rain, at night, a little crowd gathering and that is both the brand of the company and the goal of the table. I think of it as not so much a cool object that you can play tennis on but like a pub, like a bar.”

According to Good, the design of the ping-pong table is not yet finished, as a new banding will be added around the table this summer.
