- Here's my dog pooping in Bay Ridge. Yes, I picked it up.
Hey, it's my neighborhood! 11209 registered 365 noise complaints and 116 shit complaints, the third highest total in the whole city after parts of Glendale/Ridgewood in Queens and a big chunk of west-central Staten Island. How to account for this? Part of it might be the large number of seniors, who have more time to do things call 311? Maybe it's the high number of Middle Easterners, in whose cultures it can be common not to like dogs? Maybe it's all the parkland, which means more people walking around, and more dogs walking around shitting? Also, Bay Ridge has one of the larger dog populations
in Brooklyn, which maybe makes complaints proportionally more likely? But actually, Williamsburg/Greenpoint has the most dogs of any neighborhood in Brooklyn, and its dog complaints are only average, even though any time I've walked a dog over there, there was lots of dog shit everywhere, and the dogs I was watching barked their heads off!
