The management of Hawthorn Park now requires that all dogs be carried through the lobby

UPDATED, 12:48 p.m., September 8: Pup paws have no place in Hawthorn Park, a new high-rise apartment building at 160 West 62nd Street.

Like many building owners, Glenwood Management has banned dogs weighing over 15 pounds from the building, but the twist is the logic of the weight limit. Every dog must be carried by its owner into the elevator, with no paws touching the lobby floor, according to Westside Rag.

And one recent applicant told Westside Rag that the new rule turned her off from renting in the building, despite was she called the apartments “gorgeous” views.

One broker said she’s heard of similar dog weight limits before at other buildings – but never rules requiring you to carry your dog Paris Hilton style.

“This policy was established in an effort to prevent confrontations between dogs, as well as dogs and other residents, and to protect the general safety of those living in all Glenwood properties,” a spokesperson for Glenwood told The Real Deal via email. “The procedure helps ensure a peaceful and safe environment for both residents and their pets.” [Westside Rag] Christopher Cameron
