Welcome to the Longwood neighborhood of the Bronx in New York City. When you and your pup take a walk here, be ready to cross paths with some fine Longwoodians! Your walk will take you past the local police precinct, the beautiful St. Athanasius Roman Catholic Church off of Tiffany Street, and the row houses of the Longwood Historic District. There are many local spots to check out along your walk like the Casa Amadeo, a Longwood landmark and music store. You may also pass by The Crossings, a two-level 40,000 square foot mall. Fido and Fifi are not allowed inside, but maybe you can get some window shopping in!  You may also want to walk by the Hunts Point Branch of the New York Public Library. If you and your pup need a quick bite, head on over to The Boogie Down Grind Cafe and take a seat outside. Be sure to pick up after your pup!

Longwood is a mostly flat residential area consisting of varied residential houses from row houses in the historic district to 3 to 6 story pre-war apartment buildings along Southern Boulevard. The terrain here is smooth and easy to navigate which means that walks through the neighborhood are not particularly difficult to handle for dogs that are low on energy or have any joint issues. For dogs and their owners looking for a bit more of a challenge in the terrain, however, you may need to find yourself escaping to one of the area's local greenways or parks to find some walking trails. You'll want to be cautious, however, as the Bronx is a heavily urbanized area and may present some danger around major roadways, especially during rush hour. Vehicle and pedestrian traffic may pose some difficulty during your outing and will need to be navigated safely.

If you all still have some energy to burn or need a nice place to rest, you need to head over to Bill Rainey Park located between Interval and Longwood Avenues. The park is named for local World War II hero and community leader, Bill Rainey. Be sure to keep your pup on their leash as you walk through the park and always clean up after your pet. There are no dog-friendly off-leash areas in this park, so you'll need to be courteous to others. The park has many benches to rest, baseball and football fields, and human-friendly restrooms. Take some time to rest and relax at Bill Rainey Park. What a great way to end your day together with your furriest and best buddy!


Longwood has other, smaller greenways which offer playgrounds and small fields where you can stop to take a rest, so don't be afraid to do some exploring!
