Although the boundaries of Midtown vary, the northern border is agreed to be 59th Street with the south border ranging between 34th Street and 14th Street depending on the source. This neighborhood is the largest central business district in the world and contains high-end commercial shops and exclusive residences. Most residents live in high rise apartments and museums, theatres, shops, restaurants, and nightclubs are distributed along almost every street in the region. Vehicles are difficult to maintain in Midtown Manhattan and walking is the primary mode of transportation for residents to get around the region. 

Weather in New York can be wet in winter and humid in summer, although fall is usually dry. Check out the weather forecast when walking in Midtown so you can be prepared and dress appropriately. Locals with dogs that enjoy walking may even ensure their pups have protection from inclement weather in the form of jackets or sweaters.

Midtown features flat terrain with skyscrapers and high rises, office towers, and apartments. Midtown contains the tallest hotels and apartments buildings in New York and skyscrapers tend to create concrete canyons with shaded streets. Midtown has many iconic landmarks including Times Square, the Broadway Theatre District, the Empire State Building, and Rockefeller Centre. There is not a lot of green landscaping in this highly developed urban area outside of area parks. 

This neighborhood is busy with commuters and employees of local businesses, residents, and tourists, so pedestrian and vehicular traffic is heavy during the day and even well into the evening.  Be careful to ensure your dog is leashed and comfortable with all of the noise and activity so that your pup is not startled into roadways and traffic. Midtown is an exciting place to live for people and pooches with much to see, but a skittish dog that is unprepared can be overwhelmed.

Another unique greenway in Midtown, the High Line, runs along a now defunct elevated rail line. This 1.45-mile greenway provides not only lawns and trees elevated above the streetscape, but a unique view of the communities below. Many off-leash dog runs are located in Midtown Manhattan. Astro Dog Run, Madison Square Dog Run, West Village Dog Run, Chelsea Waterside Park Dog Run, and DeWitt Clinton Dog Run all provide a safe enclosure for off-leash activities with facilities like water supplies, doggy wading pools, cleaning facilities, seating, and agility obstacles.
