New York Today: Parking Your Pooch

Her friend, Diana Ivey, wasn’t so kind.

“I believe it’s the worst thought on earth,” said Ms. Ivey, 34, who owns a Staffordshire terrier named George. Ms. Ivey didn’t like this it enabled owners to keep their puppies for long periods. She added, “I would never take my pet dog anywhere where I would have to keep them in a box or tied up.”

Elaine Chin, 55, and Virginia Overton, 45, the owners of Charlie, a blond Golden Retriever- Corgi mix, were divided on the issue.

Ms. Chin was ready to let Charlie give it a try, but Ms. Overton shook her mind. “He’s too valuable,” she said.

Most pet owners we spoke with had the same concern: Imagine if my dog gets stuck?

(Puppy Parker said they possess round-the-clock customer service and will remotely unlock the home. And there’s a lockbox with a key on the unit.)

Vasili Gavre, 38, of Williamsburg, who is against the thought of putting his black-and-brownish Puggle, Dimitri, in a locked doghouse, said he anticipates a period when the boxes are no longer needed.

“I’m just likely to wait around until you may bring your dog inside everywhere,” he said.

Dog owners: What now ? when you have to enter a shop and have your dog with you? Carry out you like the thought of a rent-by-the-minute doghouse? Why or why not? Tell us in the comments.

Here’s what else is going on:


Crawling into a warm doghouse sounds very good right about now.

We’re expecting another chilly November morning in NY, with temperatures that will feel around freezing with the wind.

And Finally…


Mayor Expenses de Blasio has already established his talk about of don’t-say-or-do-this-in-New-York moments.

He has eaten pizza with a knife and a fork; roots for the Crimson Sox; drives to the fitness center; once dropped Staten Island Chuck, the groundhog; and thinks cargo shorts are a “valuable portion of anyone’s wardrobe.” (Which is not a fresh York thing by itself, but still indefensible.)

This week, his administration hit another nerve when the mayor’s press secretary tweeted a Chicago pizzeria was much better than those in NY.

Cue the eater umbrage.

Twitter users lambasted the staffer and needed his resignation. The Content named the tweet a “half-baked thought” and Grub Street questioned whether the mayor would have been re-elected if the tweet was dispatched before the election.

“Pizza is the everyperson’s food,” said Scott Weiner, a pizza historian. “Consider another food, like gumbo from New Orleans. Nobody cares about gumbo in Alaska. But pizza is normally ubiquitous. It takes on the identity of the town, and disrespecting the pizza of the location is sort of like disrespecting the residents of this city.”

Therefore we ask you – Fresh Yorkers, metropolis transplants and the ones who live beyond your city: How does NY pizza build up against others in the U.S.? Tell us in the comments.
