On Saturday a reader sent in the following note about the latest egging incident at the dog run underneath the Novo condo: “I was at the Park Slope Dog Run in Washington Park this evening at 7.45pm, and an egg was once again thrown from the condo, and almost hit my husband…My dog barked at the other dog, as dogs do, and suddenly an egg came from the sky landing on the ground next to my husband.

I moved there, I cannot complain about noise in the neighbourhood…” As it turns out, the reader was well within her rights to be using the dog run at 7:45: We incorrectly reported in the past that the run closes at sundown (because that’s what the Parks Dept. posters inside of it say) but, according to Kim Maier, the executive director of the park’s Old Stone House, the run was actually built to be accessible 24 hours a day even though the official closing time of the park as a whole is 10 p.m. (Yes, it’s confusing.)
