This gorgeous neighborhood in Manhattan provides beautiful walking trails through mature trees. Walking trails are wide enough to accommodate both you and your dog and pedestrians walking by. For this reason, this is a great place to bike ride, rollerblade, or skateboard with your dog. Wide sidewalks allow you to let your dog walk on a loose leash between the towering brick apartment building and tall trees. Lots of lovely grassy areas give you space to rest and relax with your dog as well.
In the center of Peter Cooper Village is a gorgeous grassy courtyard with a lovely fountain. This is the perfect place to throw a ball or frisbee with your dog or just lay around in the sunshine. The relaxed atmosphere of the space will calm you no matter how stressful your day has been, and the spray from the fountain can be wonderfully cooling on hot New York days.
Walking through Peter Cooper Village is very nice, with wide walking trails, beautiful trees, and plenty of places to let your dog walk on a loose leash far from traffic.

Peter Cooper Village may feel like a park to you, with its wide trails and tall trees, as well as the beautifully landscaped gardening around the tall brick buildings. But for an experience at an actual park, you can cross under FDR Drive to Stuyvesant Cove Park. This unique park runs right along the water so you can enjoy both the charming park experience and beautiful views of the water at the same time. The attractively paved wide walkway can accommodate you and your dog as well as pedestrians, and plenty of benches along the way will give you places to rest.
Your dog can smell the water smells while you enjoy the cooling breeze on hot New York days. Some paths are comfortably paved while others have gravel or mulch so that your dog will get to experience an unusual diversity in footing from the typical concrete and asphalt of New York walking.
