Rose Asssociates Surrenders on Dog Policy
I was wondering what was up with those designated no dog signs. Lux Living's Facebook gave the answer. (No flyer drops by the management yet to inform residents of this major change in policy.)
Seems that the areas pictured above in dark orange are off-limits to dogs, but everything else is a go: dogs can urinate and defecate wherever they want, though I'm assuming that the garden areas are still prohibited, even if they are not shown in dark orange. (Ah, as if this new freedom is going to stop dog owners from letting their pooches "stray" into the gardens!)
Though management can spin this as a compromise to make dog owners happy, I've a feeling based on past experience since dogs were allowed by Tishman Speyer (may that company name be permanently etched in the Hall of Landlord Shame) that security was just not up to catching and ticketing all the dog rule offenses that happen around here. Major FAIL, in other words.
What does this new policy mean? Well, things are just going to get worse with dog shit piling up in the green areas (why pick up when no one will see that turd hiding in the grass?) and the pungent smell of dog urine spreading throughout Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village. Shame on Rose Associates.
The fight about caring about this place is lost. Three sucker punches in a row. Game over.
