Wag! Walkers know Astoria Heights

Astoria Heights is a neighborhood located on the northside of Queens. This is a walkable neighborhood with plenty of restaurants, shops, and services located on the main thoroughfares in the region. Commercial activity is plentiful along 21st Avenue, Ditmars Boulevard, and Hazen Street. Veterinarian and pet supply shops can be reached in neighborhoods to the west and south on foot or with a short drive. 


New York weather varies from season to season and even from day to day, so be prepared and you can enjoy walking your dog throughout the year. Rain gear is a necessity in this coastal city. An umbrella is probably a good idea as well. Winter temperatures can be sub-freezing and snow occasionally occurs. When freezing rain and snow are present, walkways and streets can become treacherous. Wait for surfaces to thaw or wear footwear with good traction and use extreme caution crossing busy intersections.

What is the terrain like in Astoria Heights?

Astoria Heights is a triangular shaped neighborhood located north of Grand Central Parkway, south of the East River, between Hazen Street on the west, and 81st Street on the east. 

This is a developed urban neighborhood with many multi-story buildings. Dwellings consist of row houses, apartment complexes, and condominium complexes. The east river on the north side is a prominent landscape feature and the Rikers Island Bridge crosses the waterway here which brings thru-traffic to the neighborhood. There is an industrial area on the east side that is not a pet-friendly zone and the parkway to the south creates a barrier to on foot traffic.  

The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills to trek up and down with your dog. There are sidewalks present along neighborhood streets, so you don't have to share the road with traffic. Be cautious crossing at intersections as this is a heavily trafficked urban area and vehicles can present a hazard to pedestrians and pets! 

How many greenways are there in Astoria Heights?

Astoria Heights residents and their canine companions can visit the Carlos R. Lillo Park which is centrally located and easily accessible on foot from anywhere in the community. This is a small, but pretty park with an octagon feature at the center. The octagon is surrounded by flowering trees, gardens, and shrubs on five sides and open lawns on three sides. There are benches in the park to sit and rest and game tables where people can enjoy cards or chess. Paved paths in the park make lovely walking trails for you and your pup. There are some ball diamonds in a recreational area on the north side of Astoria Heights near the river.


Dogs are not permitted on sports fields, but can enjoy the communal walkways and grassy areas nearby. Keep your dog leashed in the parks and be prepared to clean up after your pet to be respectful to other greenway users.
