Cooling Off with Style

The temperatire is rising today as well as the humidity. This local Roosevelt Island pooch knew what to do, just jump into the fountain just behind and Southeast of Blackwell House.

  1. are dogs allowed on the island? when i lived there (1980-1998) they were expressly forbidden, which was a pretty big bummer for dog-lovers such as myself.

  2. Yes they are allowed to visit the island and also in specific apartment buildings that allow them. I know that both the Riverwalk and Octagon buildings allow dogs but I am unsure what the rules are building by building in either the original 4 WIRE complexes or Manhattan Park.

  3. Y'know, right after I wrote my comment, I kept poking around your site (which, BTW, I really enjoy, though I don't read it nearly enough) and looked at the other dog-related posts and found the RI dogs page through that, so now i am up to date. Thanks for the response!
