As a dog owner and someone that has lived in this neighborhood for a long time....... don't leave your dog outside. If you can't bring him/her inside with you then leave them at home. People lose their dogs to thieves a lot more than you realize. For those of you that know Steve's Key Lime Pies, he (being Steve) had a Jack Russell named Mango and a couple years ago the dog was hanging outside from the bakery and someone took him. He was never returned. I have heard rumors of what happens to some of these dogs when they are stolen and they are not good. Do yourself a favor and don't tie up your dog outside.

I agree with you, but in this neighborhood that is nearly impossible. I especially hate when the yuppies bring their dogs out and leave them outside as they eat a meal at a restaurant. There's just no point in bringing the dog out if it's going to sit outside alone. I know NYC has a dog tethering law in place, but it needs to be enforced more. I think the law says dogs can;t be tied to poles for more than 3 hours. It needs to be more like 45 minutes to an hour.
