New trees! June 15, 2021

We have new trees in planters for the run.

They should provide some nice decoration and needed shade.

The run is looking clean and fresh with the installed barriers and rebuilt tree pits.


Construction Progress June 11, 2021

Here’s some photos and video of what the dog run looks like today.

As you can see, there’s still more work that needs to be done.

It’s all coming together nicely we’ll be ready for June 19.

The dog run is looking great and we’re racing towards the finish line.

See you on June 19!


May 26, 2021 – the big dig

Today we saw some major construction in the dog run!

The crew from the Port Authority came in with a bobcat and dug out the back to repair the fencing to prevent rats from tunneling into the storage area.

Check it out!


May 19th

Today’s update:

The folks from Port Authority came by today and brought new planters and more custom woodwork for us. The bulletin boards look amazing!

Check out some slow-mo action shots of them cleaning off the fence!


May 13, 2021

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.
