Dog owners are coming to blows over a new canine park on the UES, which the city is moving from East 60th to 63rd according to NY magazine. The problem? The new park isn’t separated by dog size.
“On the Upper East Side, purse-dog capital of America, that’s a problem. Lori Light, owner of a nine-pound Maltese named Rupert, has taken a dog census of 103 buildings near the park. The result (small dogs: 1,148; big dogs: 328) shows, she says, that “78 percent of the dog population is getting less than 19 percent of the space.”
