Located on the east side of Midtown Manhattan, the neighborhood known as Turtle Bay is a squared off area comprised of several city blocks, boasting a bustling surrounding area full of interesting shops, eateries, and hotels. Like any place in New York City, you’d be hard-pressed to find any spot in the neighborhood that doesn’t have something to catch your attention. There are plenty of avenues for transportation, outdoor dining that can be welcoming to your four-legged friend, and a handful of small pet stores to stock up on supplies, treats, and all sorts of toys. As any New Yorker will tell you, the climate can vary from chilly and snowy in the winters to the mid-seventies and eighties in the warm summers. There are tourists aplenty in Turtle Bay, so be prepared for an influx of people on any major holiday.

Like the rest of Manhattan, Turtle Bay is about as flat as you can possibly get. An easy pathway for walkers of any skill level, don’t hesitate to travel up and down the major streets to explore every little store and shop you come across. While hills are not something you have to watch out for, traffic certainly is. New York City is as busy as they come, with plenty of cars, trucks, and buses that travel its streets every day. You’ll move faster on foot, but safety should be your main concern. Watch for the appropriate signals that allow you to cross streets and never try to cross when traffic is moving. Keep your city-loving pup by your side as best as you can, because the foot traffic is likely to be just as crowded on busier days. Sticking to the lit areas at night will help visibility on your walks and ensure that you get to your destination as quickly and as safely as possible.

There are quite a few opportunities to get your fill of green spots and nature in Turtle Bay, though you may have to do some searching around. Greenacre Park is to the north, providing lovely floral gardens and a soothing waterfall for locals to relax and take a breath of fresh air, while MacArthur Park and Peter Detmold Park both sit to the west. To the south of Turtle Bay are a handful of other small parks to explore and get away from the smoke and exhaust of the traffic stream in the city streets. These areas are not large, however, so if you’re looking for wide, open spaces for your dog to get his energy out, you may need to venture outside of the city to find them. Even so, there are lovely natural areas throughout Turtle Bay that are worth exploring.
