Tompkins Square Park

East Village City Park

In the middle 19th century the "Square" included a large parade ground for drilling the New York National Guard. The modern layout of the park by Robert Moses in 1936 is said to be intended to divide and manage crowds that have gathered there in protest since the 1870's. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tompkins_Square_Park
