"A Little Dangerous, But Not Bad"
Tompkins Avenue is the last relatively safe Avenue in Bed-Stuy. Throop gets dangerous and Marcy is fine, but do know that is straddles these two divides. The street gives Tompkins Park its namesake. The beautiful public park is an amazing place to hang around during the summer with an amphitheatre, a dog park, a youth center, picnic areas, and more. The bus runs along Tompkins to Fulton Street.
