South Street Seaport is a 12-block, historic neighborhood that is part of the original New York City Port site. This well-developed urban neighborhood now features towering high rises and skyscrapers. Residents live in high rise apartments and surrounding buildings feature both residential and office towers with commercial space at street-level. The South Street Seaport has several piers along the waterfront that harbor historic ships and a museum with the iconic Brooklyn Bridge located to the north of the district.

The terrain is flat and the area with its waterfront is ideal for walking with paved pedestrian paths allowing access to historic attractions for pedestrians. Piers provide views of the East River and the Manhattan skyline. Your dog may find this a very busy, noisy neighborhood so make sure your pup becomes acclimatized to walking in the region so that an anxious or startled pooch does not break into traffic or become lost.

The piers located at South Street Seaport have paved pedestrian paths and a promenade along the waterfront that create a wonderful waterfront 'greenway.' Although less heavy on the 'green', this beautiful pedestrian-way provides views and breezes from the East River and all the sights, sounds, and activity on the waterfront marinas to entertain. There is a dog park located here. The Dog Park East River provides an enclosed area for your pup to play off-leash and large trees provide shade to the park. The Titanic Memorial Park is located in Seaport and features a 60-foot lighthouse to commemorate the victims of this naval disaster. Shade trees and benches here also provide a nice resting spot for you and your dog on your urban trek.

Playground parks located in Seaport provide additional green space and, although dogs are not allowed in playgrounds, they can stroll the shady spots on paved pathways in and around the playgrounds.
