Seriously!  Some people have mashed potatos for brains.  Obviously being a successful, respected journalist doesn't mean you're not one of them.
 
 
Soledad O'Brien is trying to force out neighbors because of their Mastiff.  Ridiculous.  What an idiot.

How absurd is that.  I'm sure the dog is being groomed and to say you can smell it from the 1st floor to the third is ridiculous.  Heck there have been times in elevators
I've shared with babies with poopy diapers and I'm sure the mom was on her way for a change but should they not be able to stay in hotels with a baby.  That's absurd.
Hope he gets some of his lawyer friends to kick their butt, lol,

This is crap I am sorry if half of these people would take thet ime to get to know the dog then they would realize that they are being horrible monsters and you knowo what I own three cats and cats smell WAY worse than dogs the cat litter etc. you know I had people who didn't love Gracie when we first moved in and that ticked me off so bad that they didn't know her they hadn't met her they didn't know anything about her so I forced them to meet her and by forced i would wait till they were out there and I would take Gracie down there. Obviously there people are way too high falooting and snobby butt heads

Frankly I'd rather be neighbors with a big slobbery lovable dog that most people!  He is sooooooooo cute!  I would be excited everyday that I got to be in the elevator with him I'm sure!   Idiots!

Another article on this drama. Now O'Brien has listed her loft for sale. Interesting, why then, is she harassing this family and their dog? If people are holding their noses when Mrs. Lyons in the the elevator (even without her pet) maybe it is the family that "smells" and not the dog. It would be interesting to know what cuisine they dine on regularly.
Poor dog! Unwelcomed in a 4000sqft loft that has a $3million tag! These people are horrible. I wouldn't want to live in a building that house so much nastiness.


"He also offered to use the freight elevator to walk the dog, but the board refused to allow it."

Here is a perfectly logical solution to the problem, and yet the board won't allow it? I don't think that the dog is the problem in this case. I think it's the family for some unknown reason. Otherwise, it seems to me, that the freight elevator would be the perfect solution. This Chelsea loft is a renovated industrial building, meaning thick concrete construction. I had a friend that had a loft in Atlanta at the old Telephone factory and the walls were so thick you could have had a shooting gallery in one and not hear (or smell) a thing even right next door!


"'Lyons said neighbors welcomed him, his wife, and three children when they bought their $3 million, 4,000-square-foot loft in 2003, "

Also, how can they be "evicted"? They bought the loft, they own it. I'm confused. Can a Co-op board tell an owner that they have to move? I'm in AZ and we don't have Co-op buildings that I am aware of.

I deleted the other 2 posts since I obviously had more to say. :)

We were asked to leave the townhouse complex when we got Hendrix because he was a "giant" Told us there was a 1 dog limit for the complex. Mean while the head of the board had 2 dogs. We fought for awhile to stay then decided we didn't want to live there with people like that anyway. So that was the begining of our new lease on life and we became 1st time home owners. All because of a beautiful Dane named Hendrix.
