Wag! Walkers know Civic Center

Civic Center is a small neighborhood located in lower Manhattan in New York City. It is largely commercial space, as it is home to New York City Hall, the headquarters for the New York Police Department (NYPD), some courthouses, and several other government buildings. Beyond the government buildings, Civic Center also has a few other places of interest like the African Burial Ground National Monument. There are some other commercial buildings in the surrounding areas like restaurants and a few apartment buildings.  

Civic Center, like the rest of New York City, dramatically experiences all four seasons including spring, summer, fall, and winter. Temperatures can range from 0 - 100F with what can be a long and brutal winter. Those hotter summer days may also be a bit humid, so you and your pup will need plenty of water! Try to schedule walks in the morning or evening when the city’s hot, concrete sidewalks won't burn your dog’s sensitive paws. 

What is the terrain like in Civic Center?

Like much of New York City, Civic Center is all artificial terrain, but there are some manicured, not natural, greenways as well. Additionally, there are very few hills in this area which should make walking a breeze for owners and dogs of any skill level. Going towards the southern part of Civic Center, you may experience a slight decline in elevation, but it should not be anything too dramatic that would impact your pup's daily walk. You should have an easy time no matter where you venture in this neighborhood.

Civic Center is bordered by Chinatown to the north, the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge to the east, the Financial District to the south, and Tribeca to the west. Pedestrians will want to avoid Centre Street, Worth Street, Park Row, and the Brooklyn Bridge Promenade, as these will be high-speed, high-traffic areas and can easily be imposing for a pup who is not used to fast or noisy traffic. 

How many greenways are there in Civic Center?

For such a small neighborhood, there are only a handful of greenways, although they are all manicured and are not natural terrain which can be a little disappointing for more avid nature lovers. These include James Madison Plaza, City Hall Park, Thomas Paine Park, Collect Pond Park, and Columbus Park. Your dog will need to be leashed at all times while visiting these parks, particularly since they are a high-trafficked area by operating government buildings. All of these areas will have paved walking paths for you and your pup to enjoy. Besides benches, these parks generally do not have recreation areas, playgrounds, or sports facilities. 

There are several other greenways within walking distance. Civic Center is four miles away from Central Park, one New York City's largest greenways, which offers more walking and hiking trails, miles of green space to explore, and even the Central Park Zoo. Some areas do not allow dogs, so make sure to double check.
