Brighton Beach and the greater New York City area experiences all four seasons: spring, summer, winter, and fall. During the summer months, you and Fido may want to head out to walk along the boardwalk. Just be sure you have plenty of water and find shade when needed. During the winter months, you'll likely experience snowy, cold, and windy conditions.
Being so close to the Big Apple, Brighton Beach is largely artificial terrain but the sandy beach and access to those Atlantic waves helps this neighborhood feel a bit less urban. However, with the more urban and artificial terrain, there are actually very few trees in Brighton Beach. Always make sure you have plenty of water and you are aware of how hot the sidewalks may be as they may burn your pup's sensitive paw pads. Brighton Beach is also a rather flat neighborhood, so you and Fido should not have to deal with strenuous inclines or declines.
The boundaries of Brighton Beach include Shore Parkway to the north, Corbin Place to the east, the Atlantic Ocean to the south, and Ocean Parkway to the west. Other major roadways include Brighton Beach Avenue, Coney Island Avenue, and Neptune Avenue. Pedestrians and their pups may wish to avoid these areas.
Thankfully, there are also quite a few greenways in the surrounding areas. Nearby greenways include Homecrest Playground, Asser Levy Park, Century Playground, Manhattan Beach Park, Coney Island Creek Park, Kaiser Park, Calvert Vaux Park, and Sixteen Lindens Triangle. Many of these parks are dog-friendly as long as Fido remains leashed at all times. However, Manhattan Beach Park is also home to the Manhattan Beach Dog Run, a small, enclosed area for Fido to run off some extra energy and to socialize with other local pups.
