Wag! Walkers know Downtown

Downtown, also known as lower Manhattan, is arguably the very heart of the Big Apple. It is where New York began in 1624 and is still the thriving financial center of the country. It is comprised of several smaller neighborhoods including the Financial District and Greenwich Village. The community is vibrant and it is full of restaurants, food carts, and other food and drink options as well as being home to a wide range of things to do both with your dog and without. There are plenty of pet stores, groomers, and veterinarians in the area.

Weather can range from being very mild to harsh with everything from blizzards to high heat and humidity during the summer. Hurricane Sandy ravaged this area, leaving it flooded and without power. Overall, however, it is a very walkable neighborhood and the days where it is okay to walk far outweigh those when you will feel the need to stay home.聽

What is the terrain like in Downtown?

Much of New York is flat and sits at sea level and this area is no different. If flat terrain while walking is your preference, then you will be quite content walking through Downtown. Flat terrain might be perfect for your style of walking, but that does not mean that this area is not without its challenges for walkers. Many of the areas, especially around the Financial District, are quite crowded.

If you are wanting to get any exercise at all, the continual stop-and-go and slow down for crowds is no way to go about it. In addition, the crowds and loud noises might be frightening to your dog. You will also notice that the amount of greenery in the city varies greatly by the area of Downtown you are in. In the Financial District you will be lucky to find a few trees. While other neighborhoods have streets lined with shade providing trees.聽

How many greenways are there in Downtown?

There are walking paths going through Downtown that do provide an alternative for walking that may not be quite as crowded. The Hudson River Greenway is one such walking path, but it is not really much of a greenway in that there is really only trees and shrubs. The farther up north you go, there is more grass and long stretches of the path, so it makes for a much more pleasant place to go walking.聽聽

There are many parks in downtown but not all of them are appropriate destinations for your dog. Washington Square Park is up along the north boundary of Downtown and has a dog-friendly area where you can let your pup run. A mile and a half path and greenery along the way make the John V. Lindsay East River Park a good destination for walkers and their enthusiastic furry friends. With lovely views to discover, you certainly want to stop by for a visit.聽
