New York City meets Munich

Boston on four paws

December 3rd, 2002 · No Comments · Uncategorized

New York City is a dog town. Us wacky New Yorkers love our dogs, and there’s more amenities and perks for pooches per square mile in Manhattan than probably any other place on Earth.

I learned over the weekend, though, that Boston does one thing for dogs that New York City does not: let them ride on the subway.

This came in very handy when ConnyWho is Conny? and I made a mad dash into Boston for a quick and dirty tour. The girl wanted to see Beantown, and the pup was in tow. Driving all the way into Boston is an exercise in frustration. The trick is to park on the outskirts and use mass transit.

Luckily, before our trip, I had stumbled over a copy of “Boston for Dog Lovers” and discovered that the T is dog-friendly. As long as your dog is on a leash, and you don’t ride during the weekday rush, you are good to go. And dogs ride free.

So we all rode the train together. Several times. Both Conny View definition in a new window and Leo liked Boston, even though it was cold, and we only had less than three hours to walk around and take it all in. The time constraint was probably a good thing, since we couldn’t really go in anywhere or do much of anything other than stroll about with our furry friend with us.

I think he was the only one of us not cold, though.
