Located on the East River which is a predominant feature of  Midtown East, Manhattan is a busy urban environment with multi-story buildings, office towers, and high rise apartments. The terrain is flat, however, buildings towering many stories over the streetscape create shady, artificial canyons. Landscaping in this region is limited as it is highly developed and artificial, however, some trees and greenery have been placed on properties and streets where feasible.  

Midtown East is an extremely active, noisy neighborhood with lots of vehicles and pedestrians. When you walk your dog in the area, make they are acclimatized to all the hustle and bustle, keep them secure on a leash, and make sure your dog does not inadvertently step out into traffic or get stepped on in crowded streets by other pedestrians. Doggy boots to protect their feet might be advisable in this 'urban jungle' to protect from hard pavement and hazards on sidewalks.
