Norman: First of all, i have seen dog poop. I agree there is more goose poop, but i have seen dog poop on the Greenway and on sidewalks. I don't know what part of Co-op City you live in.
Second, dogs may be a great form of safety and company, but they are loud and some of their owners do not pick up their dog's defecation. And i have seen more young and middle-aged people with dogs than the elderly. Matter of fact, i volunteer at the JASA center on Dreiser Loop and i hear alot of the seniors complaining about the dogs You gotta realize that most of the seniors living in Co-op City have been here for decades if not when Co-op actually opened. I've been here since 1977 and i never heard seniors saying they need to let dogs in here. It's the new residents that wanted dogs. The Section 8 people that they are now letting up in here. What's next, pit bulls and rottweilers?
