Ah, the Smells and Sights of a Dog Friendly Stuy Town/PCV

A favorite corner at the Oval for dogs to piss on. All vegetation dies here, and soon the bricks will crumble.

The summer. Hot, humid. And the stifling smells of dog urine all over Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village. Now, there's few places people can sit and relax on benches without being overwhelmed by the stink of dog urine or crap.

And when you walk these lovely grounds--watch your step....

With each passing month, dog owners are feeling more and more entitled to do what they want by allowing their dogs on the grass and garden areas, removing dog signs, going into areas blocked off for new grass to grow, tagging property with messages about dog runs, letting their dogs piss and shit wherever, releasing their dogs in stairwells to piss against the walls and pipes, letting their dogs off leash or extending retractable leashes to ridiculous (and illegal) lengths. These obnoxious air-heads don't give a damn about the rest of the community and our enjoyment of it, just as long as they get to do what they want with their Fidos.

The worst decision Tishman Speyer made--removing the ban on dogs in Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village!

And, of course, you can forget our Security being diligent concerning enforcing the dog rules here. Get off your fat asses, guys, and start giving out tickets!

Mexican Gang Tags Stuy Town

With so many Mexican workers in and around Stuy Town, you knew it would come to this. At the seat of one of the benches around the Oval (near the Security Booth of all places!), we found this "La Raza Loca" tagging.

Viva Mexico!

Someone Please Fire Stuy Town's Security Chief

Well, it happened. An elderly woman got knocked down by a speeding bicycle on the 20th Street Loop and wound up in the hospital. According to Town & Village, a rep for Tishman Speyer had the audacity to state that security is "vigilant" in enforcing the rules in Stuyvesant Town (which includes no bike riding). BULLSHIT.

Our security team is regrettably NOT vigilant (aside from a rare employee or two). Security allows bike riding right before their noses, as well as other infringements of the rules (dogs off leash, dogs on grass, etc.) Our security SUCKS overall.

The culpability rests at the top, so--SOMEONE PLEASE FIRE OUR SECURITY CHIEF. He is either clueless or, if clued in, doesn't give a damn.
