Tompkins Square Park Coming Undone

Now that the snow is receding, the damage brought about by the snow and ice is becoming apparent! I saw this the other day, while walking through Tompkins Square Park:

Hexagonal paving stones missing.

Two of the hexagonal paving stones near the big ol' elm tree on the south side are displaced! One is beside the hole it left, attached to a slab of ice, but the other is nowhere to be found!

Parks Department workers have probably already repaired this, but East Villagers should be careful walking around in the coming days — there's no telling where the next hole will open up!

Living on the edge… in the East Village Today!

  1. :-) if you tilt your head to the right just a bit, that looks like a white animal whose mouth is eating the black whatevers? :-)
