East New York occupies one square mile and the terrain is flat, so walking with your dog does not require strenuous climbs to navigate elevation changes. Residential buildings are a mix of multi-story walk up apartments, semi-detached homes, two to four family houses, condominiums, co-ops and single-family homes. There are several public housing developments in the area with extensive properties and interconnected walkways, trees, and green spaces. There is some industrial activity in the northwest area of the community and this area is not pedestrian or pet-friendly. Sideways along commercial corridors and quiet residential streets are more hospitable for walking with your dog. Residential streets have landscaping and shady trees to enjoy and although traffic is prevalent on main streets with commercial activity, these locations are quieter and safer for walking your dog than industrial areas. Subsections of East New York include City Line, New Lots, Spring Creek, Cypress Hills, Starrett City, and the Hole.
