People who take their dogs to Bull Moose Dog Run are being urged to come out to Tuesday’s Community Board 7 meeting to fight the Museum of Natural History’s expansion project. The expansion project isn’t on the community board agenda, but people can speak about any local topic during a public comment session near the beginning of the meeting. (The expansion plans as currently drawn don’t appear to affect the dog run, although they would affect another section of Teddy Roosevelt Park.)

Among the items on the agenda are the street fair calendar for this year (a topic of heated discussion in our comments section a couple of weeks ago), and a couple of liquor licenses, including for Gebhard’s Beer Culture on 72nd and for Salumeria Rosi on 73rd. Check out the full agenda below.

      Those signs were all over the UWS over the weekend with no explanation as to which park or what the issue was.
      Poor planning on the part of the organizers, I say!

      Were it not for AMNH there would be no Dog Run. I oppose uncontrolled development (zoning failures) and changed my mind about opposing AMNH expansion:during childhood visits I felt interior design had failed me and natural history with dead ends, too-narrow walkways, lack of lighting and of merging/transitioning exhibits. Is it time to focus on growth now?

      It’s my understanding that the expansion won’t affect the dog run. Am I wrong?
