Political Conversations: at the Dog Park

Tuesday, January 22, 2008

Last fall, New Yorkers in the Tompkins Square Park dog run seemed reluctant to support Senator Barack Obama for President.

But as WNYC’s Jim Colgan found out when he went back a few days ago, now there’s an active debate. Jim checked in on the political conversation in the East Village, beginning with 19-year-old Destiny Mata and her mother, Mary-Ann.
