Thomaston is a large neighborhood located on the Great Neck Peninsula of New York. This residential neighborhood is largely composed of expansive, single-family homes, large trees, and well-maintained sidewalks. The limited commercial spaces located in Thomaston include a school, churches, several health facilities, a few restaurants, and gyms. Unfortunately, there are no pet-related businesses in the neighborhood, but there are several pet supply stores and animal clinics in surrounding areas. 

You and Fido should have plenty of beautiful days while out for a walk, particularly in late summer and fall! While Thomaston does experience all four seasons, spring and fall are milder while summer can be hot and humid. Thankfully, you're near the shoreline, just in case Fido needs a quick swim to cool off on those hot and sunny summer days. Winter, unfortunately, can feel rather long, cold, and wet with plenty of snowfall and freezing rain.

Thankfully, most of this neighborhood has well-maintained sidewalks which are covered with large trees that provide shade during the sunny, summer days. Additionally, Thomaston has quite a few hills, particularly on the west side of the neighborhood. It seems to be a bit flatter closer to the shoreline on the east side of the neighborhood. 

The boundaries of Thomaston are not exactly linear, but they are considered to be Nassau Drive to the north, East Shore Road to the east, Northern Boulevard to the south, and South Middle Neck Road to the west. Besides East Shore Road and Northern Boulevard, Grace Avenue and Colonial Road are two other major roadways through this neighborhood. Pedestrians may wish to avoid these roads while out walking just to avoid high trafficked areas or congestion!
