  1. Hello. I tried opening the link to the new parks blog, and it failed. Anyway, I want to report that the new doggie run at St. Mary’s Park in the South Bronx has not been maintained at all. It’s a shame because dog owners were using it. The fencing has been vandalized.

    I have written to the association behind the dog run on the Facebook page and have received no response. Others have also written. The Facebook page has not been updated actually.

    Who takes care of that dog run? It seems as though nobody does.

    • Ms. Gonzalez,

      Sorry, the link was in fact broken, but the web address is correct: It’s been corrected now.

      As for your other question, we will look into it and contact you via e-mail.

      Joe Taranto
