Alphabet City, 7th Street Between Avenues A and B

This is the entrance to Tompkins Square Park, and if I read this correctly, this lady is a couple of moves away from a checkmate and is leaning back, enjoying the situation. Unless I'm wrong.

The link above is the official City Parks link, but you may prefer this New York Times article, which is about a walk taken in the East Village with Clayton Patterson, apparently a well-known documentarian of this area.

If you have no time to be following links, just know that this park hosts the Howl Festival, during which Wigstock has appeared, but not this year, and the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival. Keep these in mind for next year; they've come and gone this year.

See map.
