According to the New York Post, the management of 62nd Street’s Hawthorn Park requires dog owners to carry their pets through the 339-unit building’s lobby, lest they “urinate or pass stool” or otherwise sully the “gleaming white marble” floor. Dogs also aren’t allowed in Hawthorn Park’s regular elevators, and must instead use the service elevators like commoners. Maybe the canine residents should just make like they’re in Jersey and set the place on fire.
