Cigar’s The Crime
The "disgusting and disrespectful" behavior, cited by Ed Shevlin in the Veterans Circle, is not the new name or the dog feces. It is Mr. Shevlin's smoking a cigar in the park. The disgusting reek of his cigar (much worse than that of cigarettes) pervades the whole park. He is disrespectful of the other people, especially children, who are forced to breathe the unhealthful fumes.
Smoking in public parks in New York City is also illegal.
