Hello AT, I currently live in Brooklyn and am having to move into the City for work. I have a large dog and although finding apartments that take dogs has not been a problem, I cannot figure out where in Central Park I can let my dog run off-leash (on the UES or the UWS of the park). In Prospect Park, in Brooklyn, we have off-leash hours before 9am and after 9pm. I cannot seem to find a map of any sort that tells me what areas of Central Park allow dogs to be off leash before 9am and after 9pm. All the printed literature regarding dog policies for Central Park just gives the hours, not the designated areas. Any information is most appreciated. Thank you, in advance. RJD

Deart RJD, our stepmother is a die hard Central Park dog walker and - though we could be wrong - we think that in Central Park you are not legally allowed to be off-leash at any time, but people and cops generally don't mind before 9am and after 9pm. It's not written down anywhere, but it seems to be sort of a social code. Anyone else have better info? (pic: Anna & Henk)
