EAST VILLAGE — A ping-pong table recently-installed in Tompkins Square Park has been tagged with graffiti.
Still, ping pong players in the park Saturday were undeterred.
"It doesn't change the game," said Jonathan Lee, 25, a musician from New Zealand, who was squaring off against East Villager Carlos Rodriguez.
"We need more [pingpong] tables around the park," said Rodriguez, a 25-year-old photographer. He added, "It sucks that [this table] was vandalized, but that's New York City, man."
The table was a gift from local company Henge, which manufactures all-weather outdoor tables for public use.
