If he was in Central Park right now he could be armed and off his leash.
I just came across important news from our friends at Central Park Paws. The news clarifies what has long been rumored for us New York City dogs (you freewheeling, meadow-romping country types may now tune out): between certain hours we are allowed to be off leash and free to snuffle about. It may be but the shadow of freedom, an illusion shattered by the reality of the leash awaiting us at the conclusion of our frolic, but between 9pm and 9am daily, I may now officially roam untethered (Harry has done so unofficially and with one eye trained over his shoulder for the law –the penalties for the illegally unleashed are dear).
