To utilize the parlance of our times, dog ownership in North Brooklyn remains in a bit of a “flop era” (no offense to the accountable dog owners out there, complete offense for the careless ones who don’t get after their family pet and force common greenspace to close down). And we completely get it — honestly, there aren’t adequate locations in the location where dogs and people can quietly (and sanitarily) exist together.
So we at Greenpointers are happy to reveal the arrival of a Williamsburg area of Boris & Horton, the East Village coffee shop that costs itself as “New York’s first dog-friendly cafe.”
“Boris & Horton is New York’s first Department of Health approved dog-friendly café where customers are welcome to bring their own dogs inside,” the coffee shop’s website. “In addition to serving great coffee, beer, wine and snacks, Boris & Horton also hosts adoption events and fundraisers with the hope that many dogs find their forever homes here.”
