Bushwick is a neighborhood located in the northernmost part of Brooklyn. Its southern border is Broadway with Stuyvesant Heights as its southern neighbor. Just west of the area, you’ll find the Broadway Triangle and East Williamsburg can be found just north of Bushwick. If you head across Cypress Avenue, you’ll come across the neighborhood of Ridgewood.
For pet grooming services, Bushwick is not lacking in options. Expert Pet Grooming Salon can be found on Myrtle Avenue, a great option if you’re in the northeast of the neighborhood. If you find yourself in the west, head to Bushwick Bark. This awesome pet store sells organic dog food and offers grooming services too! Alternatively, head to Pet NV on Central Avenue. Here, you’ll find everything you could need from toys and food to doggie shampoo and brushes. The Neighborhood Vet is a veterinary service on wheels located in the Broadway area.
Bushwick itself is an incredibly flat neighborhood. Any inclines you’ll find will be relatively minor and shouldn’t cause any problems for you and your pooch. The surrounding areas of Ridgewood, Glendale, and Crown Heights are much steeper, so if you head outside of the neighborhood boundaries, you’re likely to encounter some trickier terrain.
Of course, just as with most inner-city neighborhoods, Bushwick is almost totally made up of artificial terrain. It consists of mainly residential streets and businesses, so don’t expect to find any truly wild landscapes. Having said that, this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a stroll along the streets enjoying the unique sights and smells of everyday life in the city. Your pooch will enjoy the sensory adventure that a wander through New York City will bring. If you’re in search something a little more natural, head just outside of the neighborhood to one of the surrounding greenways.
Bushwick is home to a few inner-city parks which are perfect for your daily walks. Head to Maria Hernandez Park on Knickerbocker Avenue and Starr Street for a perfect example of one of these. You’ll find a few short walking trails that are ideal for giving your pooch a quick run-around as well as a playground and basketball court in case you fancy bringing the kids. There are plenty of benches to stop at, sit back, and people watch while your doggie pal has a good old smell or plays with any friends they meet.
Another option which is much larger, but just outside of Bushwick itself, is Highland Park. This can be accessed via the Interboro Parkway and offers beautiful views over the lake as well as loads of space to let your pooch roam off the leash. It’s definitely worth the trip outside of Bushwick to embrace the true feeling of nature.
