Hot doggin’ it

Weiner dogs by the dozens descended on Washington Sq. Park last Saturday for the biannual Dashshund Festival. Above, Bosco with owner Risa, was among the many dachs decked out in colorful costume.

The former Lower West Side Printing District has seen a flurry of new high-end, residential construction. An upscale 11-story tower, designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson, is planned next door to “the Ear.”
