Charlestown Patch: March 21, 2012
Whenever more than 15,000 people of widely varying demographics call the same single square mile “home,” there are bound to be conflicts.
Remarkably, Charlestown is consistently rated one of the safest neighborhoods in Boston. Nevertheless, one conflict stubbornly remains. I am of course referring to the errant medium-to-large sized piles of both fresh and decomposing dog crap dotting the sidewalks of our otherwise happy little corner of the world.
I’ll concede that the majority of dog owners are responsible and properly dispose their pets’ piles of processed Purina. However, too many of our neighbors do not.
