Founded by former U.S. Vice President Daniel D. Tompkins and once the site of a Naval Frontier base, Tompkinsville faces New York Harbor between St. George and Stapleton.

You’ll see mainly single-family homes built in the early 20th century and an appealing commercial node around Tompkinsville Park. 

Tompkinsville is demographically and culturally diverse and is home to one of the largest Sri Lankan communities outside of the country.  This "Little Sri Lanka" has a fast-growing culinary reputation.
