Borough Park is located in southwest Brooklyn. The neighborhood is highly residential, however, there are commercial businesses in the north end and a commercial corridor along Thirteenth Avenue. The area has a large Hasidic Jewish population and many of the shops along 13th Avenue cater to this population. Kosher shops in the area attract visitors from all over New York. The area is highly walkable and many residents stroll to local schools and parks or along 13th Avenue to peruse local businesses. 


The weather for on-foot travel in New York varies between the different seasons. Coastal weather is often wet with snow, sleet, and cold temperatures in the winter. Spring brings showers and hot, humid summers are the norm with occasional storms in autumn. Be prepared if you enjoy walking with your canine companion in Brooklyn, with warm, waterproof outerwear for cold, wet days and breathable light clothes for hot, humid days.

Residents in Borough Park live in single-family homes, duplexes, townhouses, condominiums, and apartment buildings. Roads are laid out in a typical urban grid pattern with sidewalks and large mature trees in the neighborhood providing shady pedestrian ways for on-foot travel. Properties are well landscaped for a highly urban, developed neighborhood and trees and shrubs in Borough Park provide greenery in springtime and summer, displaying beautiful fall colors in autumn. 

Elevated train tracks run through the neighborhood and there are tracks on the south and eastern border as well. Elevated train tracks are easy to cross under, but street-level tracks can present more of a barrier to pedestrians and their pups. Streets are busy and pedestrians need to watch for traffic at intersections, especially in commercial areas. A large cemetery is located on the north side of the neighborhood, providing manicured landscaping in the region.

Sunset Park is a beautiful park located on the north side of Borough Park. This green space is famous for its views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the surrounding Brooklyn neighborhoods. The park is 24 acres in size and offers a variety of recreational activities including sports facilities, eateries, an outdoor pool, and a playground. Your dog will enjoy the designated off-leash area located on the sunset oval lawn. This area is not enclosed and dogs taking advantage of this off-leash area must have good recall and be well socialized. 


To the west, the 6-acre Leif Erickson Park is a long, narrow park with recreational facilities and another off-leash area located between 6th and 7th Avenue on 67th Street. Gravesend Park is located on the south side of the neighborhood and provides 6 acres of recreational space with paved paths where local canines can enjoy a stroll.
