Great progress today in the run.

Port Authority came here with our repaired furniture and some planters.

They also did a bunch of cleaning and removed a lot of things out of storage out of the back.


Progress Update

On Friday, May 8, we met with members of the Port Authority’s office to get estimates on when they would be able to assist us with maintaining the run. This run would not be possible without their generosity.

They’re assisting us with:

  • Replacing Planters
  • Trees, Tree Pits
  • New Fencing
  • Removing debris
  • Pest Control

Additionally, we met with Jessie Bodine from Manhattan Community Board 4 to assist with getting the word out regarding our upcoming opening.

We are still on track and targeting Mid-June for a reopening.


What’s going on with Astro’s?

If you’ve been wondering why the dog run has been closed all of this time, it’s due to the construction from the NY/NJ Port Authority.

There has been delays with the required construction and repairs. Currently it is not safe for your dogs to enter the run.

We are targeting June 15, 2021 as the date in which we will re-open the run. This should give us ample time to make the necessary upgrades and repairs so that everyone can enjoy the run safely.

We will keep this site updated, so please bear with us and stay tuned!


New Website

Hi, welcome to our new website. It is currently under construction. Please be patient with us. This is dog run is run by a community of volunteers.
