Georgetown is a residential community located in South Brooklyn. There is a strip mall, the Georgetown Shopping Mall, located on Ralph Avenue with over 20 shops and there are some eateries and services along main streets bordering this quiet residential neighborhood that are walkable for Georgetown residents. There are some schools also located in the area that are walkable for families with children. 


The weather in this New York neighborhood is typical of the region with hot, humid weather in summer and cool, wet weather in winter. It can snow in the winter and a warm jacket and footwear will be required on snowy, cold winter days when walking with your pup. Summers are hot and humid and rain showers can occur throughout the year, so an umbrella and raincoat are a necessity in Brooklyn to stay dry. Your dog may even appreciate a warm, waterproof jacket for themselves!

Georgetown is a triangular shaped neighborhood north of the Bergen Beach community. Georgetown is bordered by the Paerdegat Basin on the northeast, Ralph Avenue on the west, and Veterans Avenue on the south. The area has a suburban-like feel and vehicles are a more common mode of transport in the area than in most New York neighborhoods, so residents often have driveways and garages on their properties. 


Most of the residential homes are newer, uniform in structure, and tend to be duplexes, although there are condominium complexes and apartments in the area. Some areas are well treed, but other areas are open and exposed which is uncommon in the Brooklyn Borough. The basin along the one side of the neighborhood is a predominant feature and home of the Hudson River Yacht Club. There are also open green spaces along the waterway. Luckily, the terrain in the neighborhood is relatively flat and there are no steep hills for pedestrians to consider.

There are greenways such as the Bergen Beach Playground and Hickman Playground in Georgetown. Dogs can enjoy the parks from adjacent sidewalks or paved paths on a leash. Marine Park is located to the south of Georgetown and provides 530 acres of natural and recreational green space. There are wooded areas, grassland, and a salt marsh near the inlet to Jamaica Bay. 


The Salt Marsh Nature Trail allows park goers to visit and learn about the natural area and local wildlife in the wetlands. There are lots of trails throughout the park to explore and recreational facilities such as basketball and bocce ball courts, baseball, cricket, soccer, and football fields, a skate park, boat rentals, kayak and canoe launch sites, playgrounds, a spray park, and a golf course. The park is a dog-friendly off-leash area and your pup can play loose but should have good socialization and off-leash skills. There are washrooms and eateries in the park for park-goers.
