The Garment District is located just south of Midtown Manhattan, comprising about 1 square mile between 5th Avenue and 9th Avenue, from 34th to 42nd street. This area is also known as the Fashion District or Garment Center. It features a dense concentration of fashion-related businesses, including showrooms for major fashion labels and fashion warehouses, and is home to many fashion manufacturing industries. This area is a worldwide tourist and shopping destination. 

Residential buildings and commercial buildings, hotels, restaurants, shops and a variety of services are available in this community, and traveling to local destinations on foot is common in this very busy neighborhood, as parking can be a challenge. Some nearby eateries may allow pets on the patio, be sure to inquire to see if your dog can join you for a snack outside. The weather in New York is variable for outdoor activity. Winter can be cool and even stormy depending on weather systems along the coast. Summers tend to be very hot and humid. Rain, cloud cover, and air pollution are common in this coastal area, so check weather and air conditions before venturing out for a meal on a patio with your dog, or a trip to Central Park for a walk.

The Garment District is an extremely built up, well-developed, urban area right in the heart of Manhattan, which is one of the worlds most urban environments. Natural terrain is sparse in the area, although some mature trees and rooftop gardens exist, even in this densely developed neighborhood. The Garment District is home to multi-story commercial and residential buildings and the street area is well shaded, depending on the time of day, by these towering buildings. Because of the well-established nature of the area, many buildings feature traditional architecture and there is a variety of styles, as fashion industries have developed more modern architecture alongside historic buildings. This busy area has lots of traffic from local residents, tourists, shoppers and people employed in the garment industry. When walking along sidewalks in the area you will encounter a lot of hustle and bustle. If you are walking your dog, you might want to venture out earlier or later in the day, to avoid some of the pedestrian traffic associated with the local businesses and commercial areas.

This well-developed neighborhood has a limited number of parks, however, Greeley Square located on the east side of the area provides a small green space with tables and chairs and food stands. This is a great park to visit with your dog and get a snack. You can even share with your pup if you are so inclined! 

There is a private dog park located in Hell's Kitchen just a short distance to the northwest. This park is considered to be one of the greenest dog parks in Manhattan, but there is a small user fee. If you are looking for an off-leash opportunity in the area, most locals consider it well worth it. 

If you want a big green space adventure with plenty of greenways, you may need to venture 15 blocks north to Central Park. You may transport your dog in a carrier on the subway to visit this spectacular greenway, with plenty of trails and opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors with your pooch in this world famous park. If you have a particularly large dog that won't fit in a carrier, you can always take a taxi if the walk is too far for you and your hound.
