For decades, the entrance to Gateway Plaza on South End Avenue has been a problematic zone caused by a small minority of dog owners who inconsiderately allow their pets to urinate on the sidewalk, right in front of the Chase Bank and ice cream shop. In the hot “dog days” of summer, the urine stench is unbearable. Unknowing visitors and young children sit on the same sidewalk. Thousands of others who live in Battery Park are forced to track the filth into their apartments. The wisest residents cross over to the other side of the street avoid the sidewalks.

As previously reported, BatteryPark.TV took action recently and spoke with the management of LeFrak’s Gateway and the local PEPs. More frequent power washing of the sidewalks has been the first improvement. Now, we have learned that the Gateway management is making changes to the leases with riders that ban numerous breeds of large dogs.
