Rochdale is a neighborhood located in Queens just slightly north of John F. Kennedy International Airport, its south end bordered by Belt Parkway and its northern borders spanning up towards Rochdale Village. As a mostly suburban neighborhood, Rochdale offers both housing and a few smaller shopping areas for locals to visit throughout the day. With over 20,000 residents in Rochdale Village alone, the area is a popular residence and offers educational institutions, churches, and even a library. With easily accessible transportation, the area makes for a great place to wander while staying within the comforts of suburbia. Without the noise and congestion of the inner city, what Rochdale lacks in natural wonder or pet-specific attractions, it makes up for in spacious neighborhoods and plenty of sidewalks to spend your days wandering up and down in between visits to the scenic village.

Like the rest of New York City, Rochdale’s flat terrain and grid-like streets make for easy navigation and easier walking conditions, offering plenty of space to explore both suburbia and the few commercial areas that the neighborhood has. The streets are well paved and well maintained, so a regular pair of walking shoes should be just fine for an afternoon stroll, though caution should be had when walking down Rochdale’s three or four major roadways, as traffic can get fairly heavy at the usual rush hours. Residential streets may also be a bit crowded, as cars tend to park on the sides when parking is slim. Be careful with cars backing in or out when using the sidewalks for your daily walks. If you’re searching for an area with less housing and more open space, the streets of Rochdale village may sate your appetite, providing streets and walkways away from the traffic of the other areas.

Though Rochdale itself is fairly lacking in green areas, the neighborhoods surrounding it have quite a few opportunities for nature walks, including areas such as Baisley Pond Park to the northwest, Railroad Park to the north, and Montbellier Park to the northeast. Rochdale does have a few recreational fields within its borders, which offer areas to play baseball, football, and soccer, but if you’re searching for places to explore with your canine companion, the larger parks are your best bet. Baisley Pond, in particular, offers a few dog-friendly areas and plenty of space to run, walk, and play. Montbellier and Railroad are smaller, but all of them provide a nice natural reprieve from the noisy streets of the city. However, if you’d rather stay within the neighborhood, Rochdale Village prides itself on more spacious surroundings, littered with plenty of trees and grassy areas, so consider heading there for your small taste of the natural appeal of New York City.
