Walk Score in St George
St. George is located at the northeastern edge of Staten Island. The famous Staten Island Ferry operates from here as does the Staten Island Railway. Founded in the 1800's, St. George was once a resort mecca in the 1830's with many high-end hotels for the traveling elite to stay. One of the city's finest hotels was known as the Hotel Castleton and was built in 1889, but was sadly destroyed in a fire in 1907. Some famous actors once called St. George home, like Paul Newman and his wife Joanne Woodward. Martin Sheen lived in the same building as the Newman/Woodwards; as a matter of fac,t his son Emilio was born in that very same building (the Art Deco building). The area is filled with many things to see and experience. Lace up those shoes, grab that leash and head on over to St. George for a day you and your pup will never forget.
Terrain in St George
St. George is simply beautiful! The city sidewalks are paved with concrete and the streets are black asphalt. While you and your leashed pup explore the grandeur that is St. George, you will note its many Victorian homes at the top of steep hills. There are many varying styles of architecture in the surrounding homes - some Queen-Anne style, some more modern. The neighborhood has a very small town feel though, and it is surrounded by every kind of eatery, small business or shopping you could ever dream of! The harbor borders this lovely town and its breezes can be felt as you walk along the city streets with your pup. There are some steep hills so if you and your dog aren't up to the task, why not just rest on one of the many benches and watch the world pass you by!

Let's head on out to St. George Park! Your furry friend will thank you for a day spent together in the fresh air and wide open spaces. The land was originally purchased to place a school and museum on but in 1905, the land was developed for the park instead. The beloved children's book "Pinocchio" was written by Carlo Lorenzi and the playground inside St. George Park is named from the pin oak trees that cover the area, the same type of wood that Pinocchio was carved from. There are plenty of spaces to explore and plenty of areas to rest inside the park - just be sure your puppy pal remains on their leash unless they are inside of a designated off-leash area where they can run free with their fellow furry friends.
