Located in Midtown Manhattan, Union Square-Flatiron is a busy urban neighborhood with office towers, residential apartments, and commercial ventures. The neighborhood features exclusive retail shops, banks, convenience stores, eateries, hotels, upscale restaurants, clubs, museums, theatres, and churches. Many people work in the area and it is a highly desirable residential location with rent in the area being prohibitive for many New Yorkers who live outside the city. The neighborhood is highly walkable with apartments, offices, and businesses throughout the district. Walking is a standard way to navigate the area for many residents as this area makes it difficult to own a vehicle. There is a green market at Union Square on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, and locals who enjoy walking the area can peruse the unique products here. Pedestrians with pooches that stroll Union Square-Flatiron can experience cold, wet weather in winter and early spring and need to be prepared with warm, waterproof gear and umbrellas.

Flatiron and Union Square are located in a highly developed, urban environment. Highrises, multi-story apartments, and office towers soar above street level and provide retail shops, banks, convenience stores, cafes, restaurants and other services at street level. The terrain is flat and there is little natural green landscaping on properties with most of the area being built-up or paved. This neighborhood has heavy traffic at all hours of the day and even into the evening with hotels, clubs, and restaurants open around the clock. If you have a pup that walks with you on these crowded streets, make sure he does not get stepped on by other pedestrians. Ensure your dog is accustomed to the noise, people, and traffic to prevent any fearful reactions. You will need to keep your dog leashed on busy sidewalks so your dog does not step inadvertently into traffic or into the path of other pedestrians rushing to their destinations.

There is good news for canines as a fenced off-leash dog park is located here where your pup can play and meet other local fur friends. 

On the northern border of Flatiron is Madison Square Park with 6.2 acres of lawns, trees, a historic fountain, and a contemporary reflecting pool that provide plenty to take in at this beautiful park. There are also some popular local food vendors and restaurants located along the square. This park also contains a fenced off-leash dog run. Residents enjoy sitting on the square or lounging on the lawn under the shade trees for a respite from the surrounding concrete and urban activity of Midtown.
