It’s That Time…Westminster!

 

By Amy Fernandez

Just when you’re ready to give up, dog shows have suddenly reclaimed their rightful pre-Westminster notoriety with a deluxe, two page spread in the Sunday Times sports section.

It’s truly a heartening sign, even if poor old Nornay Saddler is misidentified as Champion Norway. The article gives us a priceless recap of New York Times archival photos from the ‘40s through the ‘80s including a great candid shot of the Rockefeller-owned Bedlington, Sir Lancelot of Rowanoaks. Check it out.

Anyway, the party kicks off bright and early tomorrow at Piers 92 & 94. Apparently there’s still no onsite parking this year since repairs remain ongoing after Carnival Cruise Lines opted to park one of their ships on Pier 92 last August. We never did get much explanation about how the ship managed to smash into the pier in broad daylight on a perfectly clear, calm day. But the NYC Department of Buildings has reassured us that the pier is no danger of collapse. So, thankfully, Westminster is in no danger of sinking into the Hudson. However, you will have to grit your teeth and eat those midtown parking rates this year. On the bright side, the place will probably be swarming with NYT photographers so brace yourself for at least 15 minutes of fame!
