East New York is a rather large neighborhood located in Brooklyn, New York. This neighborhood is roughly six miles west of John F. Kennedy International Airport. This expansive community is a great mix of residential and commercial spaces. The residential areas range from standalone, single-family homes, to smaller, duplex-style buildings and larger apartment complexes. This neighborhood also has plenty of access to public transportation should you be looking to go in and explore the Big Apple sometime. 


The commercial areas have needed businesses like grocery stores, banks, schools, churches, and gas stations, as well as more entertaining options like restaurants, a shopping center, a movie theater, a nature preserve, community baseball fields, and a community flea market! Thankfully, there is one pet supply store located in the southern part of this neighborhood. There are also several other pet supply stores, grooming parlors, and an animal clinic in the surrounding neighborhoods.

East New York is a largely urban community with artificial terrain. Thankfully, there are a few large greenways located on the neighborhood's shoreline that help give East New York residents direct access to more natural terrain. Additionally, you might get an extra workout from this neighborhood's hills. As you move more inland, you will start to experience a gradual increase in elevation, however, if you stay close to the shoreline, your walk will be relatively flat and easy. Thankfully, this neighborhood has plenty of wide and well-maintained sidewalks so you and Fido should be safe from the hustle and bustle of New York traffic! 

The boundaries of East New York include Atlantic Avenue to the north, Conduit Boulevard and 78th Street to the east, Betts Creek, Old Mill Creek, Hendrix Creek, Fresh Creek, and the North Channel to the south, and 108th Street and Van Sinderen Avenue to the west.
