The Gramercy-Flatiron district is named for two landmarks located in this area of Midtown Manhattan: The Flatiron Building, New York's oldest skyscraper, and Gramercy Park. The district is a commercial area with residential space on the upper floor above retail and commercial space. The area is highly walkable with most residents using pedestrian travel as their primary mode of transportation and a multitude of shops, restaurants, and services are located in the vicinity.  Museums and other institutions, as well as offices, are also located here. 

The weather in New York does not stop pedestrians who travel the area on foot, however, cold inclement winter weather with snow and sleet do frequently occur in winter months. Pedestrians who walk their dogs regularly need to be prepared for the wet, cool weather. Summers are hot and humid and you may choose to avoid walking in this busy neighborhood during the heat of the day. Cooler, quieter evenings may be preferable.

The Flatiron-Gramercy District is a highly developed urban area considered to be one of the most populated and commercialized areas in the world. This region is characterized by skyscrapers and high rises with offices, apartments, theatres, museums, and exclusive shopping areas. Due to the tall buildings in Midtown, little sunlight reaches street level and buildings in the district create artificial canyons. 


Streets are flat with sidewalks for pedestrians and very busy with vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Several iconic landmarks are located in this area including the Empire State Building, Gramercy Park, and the Flatiron Building itself. The FlatIron building is an iconic triangular 22-story wedge-shaped building considered to be the oldest skyscraper on the island. Many buildings in the area are historic and this is considered an exclusive, luxury neighborhood with residential space that is not affordable to most New Yorkers. You'll want to be considerate of where you roam in this higher end neighborhood.

Gramercy Park is an exclusive, gated park available only to residents with key access and not open to locals with their dogs. Madison Square Park, however, has a large, enclosed off-leash dog run that your pup can enjoy. This double gated park has separate areas for large and small dogs, umbrellas to provide shade, and a water supply for hot days. The park is over 6 acres with trees and paved pedestrian paths you and your pup can enjoy as long as you keep your dog on a leash and be sure to clean any leavings. The park often features artwork and has popular local eateries where you can grab a bite to eat. 


Union Square Park is also located in the region and has a dog run with water troughs for drinking and cooling off. The rest of the park is 6 acres and has restrooms, eateries, playgrounds, and pedestrian paths to stroll with your dog.
