Tribeca Braces for a New Dog Kennel

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Here’s an interesting story. A building in Tribeca, in Lower Manhattan, has had some vacant ground floor and basement space for quite a while now. The upper floors are all residential units but the landlord has recently given the retail space downstairs to – you guess it – a kennel owner.

Residents are worried about having dogs as neighbors. Will they be too noisy? Will they disturb the peace?

Kennel owners claim they are waiting for permits so that they can do some interior work, including the installation of significant levels of soundproofing between the ground floor and residential units above.

Now, once the noise concerns are alleviated, they’ll have to worry about the stench.
