Port Morris is located on the southernmost tip of the Bronx. This mostly industrial neighborhood is increasingly being developed as a residential area. Although there is still a lot of industrial activity in Port Morris, warehouses are rapidly being converted to loft apartments. Many trendy restaurants, bars, and unique shops are now located here, making the neighborhood much more walkable than in its previous life. 


Residents with pets that walk their dogs daily need to be prepared for fickle New York weather. Winters can be cool and wet and sleet and snow occur frequently. You and your pup will need warm outerwear to “weather” New York winters. Rain is frequent in this coastal location, so you will want a good raincoat and maybe one for your dog too. Did you know you can get an umbrella for your dog? Check out local supply stores for options to keep your dog dry if your pooch doesn't like puddles!

Port Morris contains the southernmost tip of the Bronx, Oak Point, and is located south of the Bruckner Expressway. The population of the area is 3,523 with a lower population density than most New York neighborhoods as much of the area is still dominated by industrial activity. Industrial sites and streets are not designed for pedestrian traffic and caution should be used when walking your dog near industrial activities. There are also train tracks running on ground level through Port Morris that present a barrier to pedestrian travel. The terrain, however, is flat and the expressway is elevated which allows pedestrians to easily cross underneath this busy road to get to adjacent neighborhoods. 


Many historic warehouses in this neighborhood have recently been converted to residential lofts and trendy commercial street-front venues. This neighborhood is bounded on the east and south sides by water. The Harlem River and East River are predominant features of the area.

Residents of Port Morris can take the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge Trail with their dogs across the water to Randall's Island Park. This park has many sports fields and recreational facilities, but of most interests to dog walkers and their pets are the nearly eight miles of winding trails and pathways that loop through the park. This park is surrounded by water and contains marshes and wetlands that harbor a variety of birds and wildlife.

Saint Mary’s Park is located in the community to the north and can be reached by crossing under the expressway. This is the largest park in the south Bronx at 35 acres in size. There are sports facilities here and recreational activities. Paved pedestrian paths crisscross the park. There's even a dog run located here at the corner of Cypress Avenue and East 143rd Street. This enclosed dog run allows you to let your pup play off-leash in a safe environment.
