Emerson Hill is a exclusive, affluent residential neighborhood, located in the east central area of Staten Island. Large residences are located on the hill for which Emerson Hill takes its name. Because this area is private and there are no pedestrian ways along the narrow, private roads, locals are discouraged from walking their dogs in this part of Emerson Hill unless they are residents of the private community. Residential neighborhoods at the foot of the hill, are more accessible by foot.

There are few businesses or commercial areas in Emerson Hill and weather for enjoying walking in the area with your dog can be variable on Staten Island due to its coastal location. Rain is common in fall, winter, and spring, and although temperatures are generally moderated by the proximity to the ocean, they can be cool in winter. Summers tend to be warm and sunny on most days and spring and fall can be overall pleasant for walking.

The Emerson Hill area features steep inclines, mansions, elaborate landscaping, and narrow winding roads on the hill. Private residential areas, and more gently sloping terrain sit at the base of the hill, where more moderate, although beautifully landscaped and appointed homes exist. Due to the hilly grounds, the road pattern follows the terrain, and not a traditional grid pattern. If you're walking in the neighborhood, the private residential areas beyond the gate on Emerson Hill do not feature pedestrian walkways and because they have low visibility due to vegetation. With the winding, steep nature of roadways, walking your dog along these roads can be hazardous. Keep your dog leashed and your eye out for approaching vehicles. Residential areas at the foot of the hill are more pedestrian friendly. The Staten Island Expressway runs to the north of the community, separating it from northern neighborhoods and is not a pedestrian friendly area.

Deere Park is a large 39 acre park and natural green area, located on the western side of Emerson Hill. This heavily treed park has many hiking trails, including the Staten Island Greenbelt Blue Trail that connects to a much larger park system, with many acres of green area to enjoy.  The trail is accessible year-round and dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a leash. There is plenty of wildlife in the park, and although ironically named for John Deere, the park does indeed contain white tailed deer!

To the south in the community of Todt Hill lies the Reeds Basket Swamp Park. This 52 acre park has an oak, birch, tulip, magnolia, hickory, and chestnut tree forest that covers over half of the park, three ponds, and as indicated by the name, a swamp area. There are trails through the park and dogs are permitted on leash.
