I was up early today in the complex and checking things out, past 7am until around 8:40am. Today is the day that finally Blackstone and PS will actively address the dog lanyard issue (again). This is what is saw:
There were no foot patrols around the perimeter of PCV and ST. I counted 10 non-lanyards and 2 lanyards inside PCV. The PS officer inside the large booth at PCV was engrossed in a paper, probably the Daily News. I stopped counting lanyards soon thereafter. I did see a PCVST patrol car going up the 1st Avenue island a bit later, as well as two police traffic cars. These were near 14 St, where I was heading from PCV. Incidentally there is a gathering of dog-owners at the PCV "park"--south end, and the entire faux marble building entrances at PCV are stained with dog-urine. No PS presence when I was there.
Turning the corner at 14th, then going into ST at the Ave A entrance. I was not counting by then, but I saw dog owners with lanyards. I saw no one entering the neighborhood at that time from outside. Again no PS foot presence.
I sat at the bench near the PS office. One riding bicycle passed me by. No PS foot presence or awareness, though the bike passed by the PS office. I guess the monitors can pick him up, but so what?
I have photos, which I may post. Busy day, so things have to wait a bit.
Incidentally today is Friday, so parking tickets are being written along the 1st Avenue loop for a limited time.
