Death row dog gets stay of execution

A lucky pit bull called Brooklyn got a court-ordered stay of execution while sitting on New York’s doggy death row after animal-control workers took pity on him and worked to save his life.

Seven-year-old pooch Brooklyn had been fated to be put down for biting his owner’s teenage niece in 2012, says the New York Post.

But employees at the city’s Animal Care and Control facility in Harlem came to love the dog, and disagreed with the decision by ACC officials to euthanize him.

On Tuesday, they got a lawyer from an animal-advocacy group to go to Manhattan Supreme Court and get Brooklyn a reprieve.

    Hey there. My husband and I used to live in New York City we moved away a year ago. (We’re the same ages as you and your boiyfrend, which is kind of funny.)We had a basement apartment in College Point, Queens. I liked the area a lot. It was relatively quiet but also convenient to stores, restaurants, banking, laundry, etc. We paid $ 750 for the apartment, which was a one-bedroom with no frills. Utilities were included. That was pretty unusual, but we were blessed to have found it! It wasn’t the nicest of apartments, but it suited our budget and gave us a decent place to live for a couple of years. College Point is growing and improving (lots of renovation and construction going on). The only negative side of that neighbhorhood is that transportation is not very accessible. The subway does not stop there, so you have to take a bus to the train in Flushing. Depending on where you are in College Point, it could take 30 minutes or so to get to the train (or more if the bus isn’t running on schedule). We were lucky to have a bus stop right in front of our house (apartment), though!Another place to check out is Elmhurst in Queens. My husband lived there before we got married. It’s very convenient to shopping and everything else, and the train runs there. He had a studio apartment there and paid around $ 900 for it. Again, not the nicest of places, but it was fine for him.Good luck to you! Was this answer helpful?

  • ‘American Women’ actresses freaked out over their size 12 costumes June 22, 2018
    Alicia Silverstone and Mena Suvari were reportedly “horrified” when they were handed the clothes for their new show, the ’70s-era sitcom “American Woman.” It wasn’t the outfits that appalled them, costume designer Judy Gellman tells The Post, but the size they were in: 12. “Sizing was different then,” Gellman explains. Indeed, a size 12 then... […]
