New Dorp is a residential neighborhood located in Staten Island. It is roughly 13 miles south of downtown Manhattan. Most of this neighborhood is composed of standalone, single-family homes. New Dorp is also home to Staten Island Technical School, local and chain restaurants, churches, a public library branch, and a small shopping complex. The South Shore Animal Hospital is also located in this neighborhood, just in case your pup needs a check-up! There are also two pet supply stores, one a national chain and one a local business, as well as a local pet groomer, Christina's Pet Styles. Fun fact: the inventor of the Nilla Wafer, Gustav A. Mayer, lived in New Dorp!

New Dorp, like the rest of the greater New York City area, experiences all four seasons. Winters are typically cold and wet with plenty of snowfall and wind. Summers are the opposite as they can be quite humid and hot.

Depending on the route you and Fido take, you may experience a gradual hill, particularly on the northern side of the neighborhood. Other than that, the neighborhood is relatively flat. New Dorp is made of mostly artificial terrain and there is only one greenway in this neighborhood and no access to the Bay shoreline. There are some greenways with more natural terrain near New Dorp's boundaries. Thankfully, because of the more artificial terrain, you and Fido will get to enjoy this neighborhood's well-maintained sidewalks as you keep safe from oncoming traffic. 

The boundaries of New Dorp include Beacon Avenue and Richmond Road to the north, Bancroft Avenue to the northeast, Hylan Boulevard to the southeast, Tysens Lane to the southwest, and Amboy Road to the west. New Dorp Lane is also another major roadway that runs through New Dorp, so you and Fido may want to avoid those higher-trafficked areas.
