*Apr 28 - 00:05*As of Friday, Pit Bulls and 26 other “vicious and threatening” breeds will be banned from city public housing projects. Councilmember Peter Vallone Jr., who failed to convince state legislators to ban pit bulls completely in New York City, praised NYCHA’s decision: “Finally someone is realizing that these potentially dangerous animals have no place in a confined urban space.” The new regulations also ban dogs weighing more than 25 pounds, though any dogs registered before Friday may stay. |NYDN|
