This small bit of land, while not an official neighborhood, is home to a housing development and several businesses of the same name. With two schools and a recreation center, it is a growing community with its own identity. A stroll around the area will net food for the hungry, a place for groceries, and if you hop just over east and to the next small neighborhood, you will find all the pet supplies you need for your pup. In the other direction, you will find grooming and a veterinarian. 

Being on the water, New York weather can be a bit unpredictable but you can expect hot and humid summers and storms in the winter. The biggest variables are how cold winters will be and how much of the precipitation in New York will be snow. These variables might well be the only thing that will stop you from walking on an average New York City day.

Starrett City and the surrounding area has no elevation, so you will be walking on flat ground and that won’t change even if you head deeper into East New York. You may find that you do not want to leave the housing development anyway since there is a fair amount of land in this area that is left to grass. Pathways exist among the buildings which are a much safer option than city streets and along many of the paths, there is plenty of grass for your pup to explore. This grass is not just around the apartments, it surrounds most of the shoulder on the roads. What this means is there are pleasant places for your dog to explore on your daily walks. There are also plenty of clean and well-maintained sidewalks for you to walk on. If you must walk in the city, this is certainly the way to do it!

Aside from well-maintained fields and grassy patches everywhere you walk, you also have the option of heading to a park in Starrett City which is, of course, named after the community. Starrett City Park spans most of the width of the finger of land that the community is situated on. At a total of 7 acres, there is a scenic walkway and a bike path that run along the wetlands in the area. 

To the north and west, there is another park that has dog-friendly areas as well as fields to play in. Dogs may run in this park before 9 AM and after 9 PM without a leash. This is a great place for energetic dogs to come to get their wiggles out! 

Finally, just across Fresh Creek to the east is the Fresh Creek Nature Preserve. Not all of this park is open to the public but there are walking trails available on the eastside.
