Local politicians joined dog owners in “raising the woof” and cutting the ribbon at the newly renovated Leroy St. Dog Run, just north of Pier 40, near W. Houston St., in Hudson River Park. Councilmember Corey Johnson provided the funds for the renovation. Sweeney, an English bulldog, was having a good time, but he wasn’t about to let go of his tennis ball. A Husky kept it cool while grabbing a drink in the fountain. Madelyn Wils, president of the Hudson River Park Trust, brought along her two little dogs, who were a handful, literally.
