The Delaware-West Ferry neighborhood is located in the city of Buffalo, New York. A highly populated yet walkable area, this neighborhood is at the cross-section of two major streets in Buffalo. Green space is at a minimum here as this is an urban environment and both roadways are lined with residential homes, local businesses, and schools. That said, sidewalks are well-maintained and wide, offering plenty of room for pedestrians and dogs. 

This neighborhood is prone to lake effect snowstorms during the wintertime due to Buffalo's proximity to Lake Erie. Walking or driving can be treacherous at times during the winter months, and caution should be taken by the dog walker in either circumstance. Spring and summer can be alternately cool and rainy or hot and humid, while fall is the most ideal time to walk in this neighborhood. The number of large, established trees that line the streets make this place a beautiful spot to walk in the fall.

As an urban neighborhood, the Delaware-West Ferry area is dominated by residential houses and businesses. Many of these homes are old mansions or uniquely designed homes with large, wide front porches. Homeowners in this neighborhood take pride in their properties and many homes are often surrounded by large, colorful gardens. Most of the properties here have large front yards and are a distance from the sidewalk. 

This city environment requires dog walkers to be extra vigilant in regards to traffic. Crosswalks are clearly labeled with lights at each street crossing and should be used whenever you cross. Some drivers speed over the 30mph limit here so jaywalking should not be considered a viable option. Additionally, as this is a heavily populated area, many city residents and students of local schools use these streets for travel. Keep your dog on-leash at all times and be aware that other members of the community will often use these sidewalks.

Because of its urban environment, the Delaware-West Ferry area doesn't offer much in the way of greenways. It does, however, provide a beautiful setting in which to walk as the yards and homes in the neighborhoods are well-maintained. Small parks are not feasible in this area but a short drive down Delaware Avenue will lead you to one of Buffalo's great outdoor gems: Delaware Park.

Delaware Park is a Frederick Law Olmsted designed park that encompasses 350 acres of land with a main road and multiple walking paths for walkers and dogs. Dogs must be kept on a leash and cleaned up after, but there is ample space to walk or run and enjoy the surrounding 'country park' atmosphere. There are plenty of locations to stop and sit and observe the people in the park. Additionally, the park borders the local Buffalo Zoological Society and also offers a small refreshment stand with seating areas.
