Gantry Park Tosses Dog Owners a Bone With All-Day Access for Pooches

LONG ISLAND CITY — It’s barking news for LIC dogs!

Neighborhood pooches and their owners can now enjoy strolling along Pier 1 in Gantry Plaza State Park all day after the state Parks Department quietly revised its policy — a major victory for dog owners.

Previously, dog owners had been able to walk their pets on the pier, a popular area for dog-lovers, only from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
