East New York is located in Southeast Brooklyn and is a highly walkable neighborhood with plenty of commercial activity interspersed with residential buildings. There is a library, schools, shops, services, restaurants, corner stores, cafes, and a boutique pet store located in the area. Walking is a popular form of transportation in the region and there are plenty of walking destinations and accessible businesses. 


Pedestrians and their pets should be prepared for variable weather conditions and all four distinct seasons. Summers are hot and humid and rain showers are a definite possibility, so breathable clothing and a handy umbrella are a good idea for dog walkers in summer months. Spring and fall have more moderate temperatures, however, showers are still possible, requiring rain gear to stay dry. Winters are cool and wet and a warm, waterproof jacket will keep pet owners warm when they take their dogs out on a daily constitutional.

East New York is a developed urban area, densely populated with lots of main thoroughfares and traffic. Located on Jamaica Bay to the south, East New York features coastline and several creeks and wetlands along the coast. 


Residential homes in the area consist of some single-family dwellings, multi-family homes, and apartment complexes. The East Brooklyn Industrial area occupies 44 blocks in the southern region and is not a pedestrian-friendly section of the neighborhood. There have previously been undeveloped, unused lots in the area, but these are increasingly being developed as community gardens and put to better use to beautify the neighborhood.  


The neighborhood has several sub neighborhoods including City Line where many commercial enterprises are located. The area includes Spring Creek, Cypress Hills, Starrett City, and “The Hole” which is partially located in Queens and is so named because it boasts the lowest elevation in New York City. The neighborhood is mostly flat with some gentle inclines, although there are no significant hills.
