Wall Street and the Financial District are located at the southern tip of the Lower Manhattan region. Residents in the neighborhood are fortunate in that there are many shops and services in this urban area that can easily be reached on foot. This is a good thing as parking in this busy area can be challenging. Many locals enjoy walking and living right in the same district. Several notable buildings are located on and around Wall Street including the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Reserve, and One Liberty Plaza that can be visited on foot. Residents of the area with pets are also fortunate to have several parks and plazas nearby which make suitable walking destinations for furry financial district residents. Remember, however, that New York has variable weather and can experience a significant amount of rain and colder weather in the winter due to its location on the northeastern seaboard.

High rises, concrete, and traffic are prevalent in the Financial District. However, tucked away between the skyscrapers, high rises, and office towers, you will also find parks, plazas, and green spaces. Architecture in the area hales back to the Gilded Age and there are also buildings with art deco facades. This area of the city was laid out and developed before later urban planning dictating street widths and grid patterns. As a result, the neighborhood has narrow streets that lay at unexpected angles to each other and are bordered by many tall buildings that create a unique landscape of man-made canyons. The area is predominantly flat and there are sidewalks, but many pedestrian ways are often adjacent to busy roadways with no buffer. There is lots of heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic in the area so when walking your dog along busy sidewalks, make he is leashed and comfortable around crowds of people.

Plazas and parks in the area include Bowling Green Park, Manhattan Park, Titanic Memorial Park, and the Elevated Acre which all feature pedestrian walkways, seating areas, and shady trees.  For pet owners looking for opportunities to take their dog off-leash, Fish Bridge Park Dog Run can be accessed near the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge and the Dog Park East River Esplanade South is situated along the southern border on the river. These parks provide fenced areas for your dog to romp with other local canines.

Battery Park borders the Financial District to the southeast. This 21-acre, relatively large greenway along the water features many walkways, the sea glass-carousel, piers and docks, ferries to Staten Island, and a view of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.  This is a more extensive park adjacent to the Financial District to enjoy long walks with your dog and breezes off the water on hot, humid New York summer days.
