The first dog run in NYC, and my local hangout! The Tompkins Square Park dog runs are maintained well with all the necessities to keep it that way like a shovel, rake and trash receptacles. They also provide running water with a dog tub and plenty of benches. I get jealous of the big dogs, because they have a lot more room to run, but I feel safer with pooches my size. Overall, the park provides a great atmosphere with green trees all around, room for sunshine and a nice community of humans.
