Wag! Walkers know Upper East Side

The Upper East Side is a neighborhood of Manhattan, one of the five boroughs of New York City. It’s an incredibly famous area because of its central location and proximity to some of the city’s most well-known sights. It is bordered to the west by Central Park and Fifth Avenue, while the East River makes up its eastern side. 96th Street runs along its northern border and to the south, you have 59th Street. These four major thoroughfares make the neighborhood’s official boundaries.

As one of the city’s most built-up and central locations, it has a wealth of pet amenities within its borders. The University Animal Hospital can be found on 66th Street, providing all the veterinarian services that you should require. Heads to Tails for Dogs of NYC is a groomer that can be found on 72nd Street and is easily reachable from anywhere in the neighborhood or surrounding areas. Overall, you won't be short on places to visit.

What is the terrain like in Upper East Side?

Manhattan, in general, is a pretty flat district of New York. While there may be some slightly raised terrain on some roads, there are no inclines that will cause anyone serious trouble. This makes it ideal for even the least fit individuals. Central Park offers a more mixed terrain, but a stroll in the area will never be confused with a hike through somewhere like San Francisco. Once you wander above 96th Street, you may experience a few more hills, but this is outside of the Upper East Side’s borders so they are easy to avoid.

Since the Upper East Side is one of the city’s most central locations, it has a totally artificial terrain. Even Central Park can be considered artificial because it is landscaped grounds, although it definitely has a more tranquil feel to it. If you’re looking for truly natural terrain, you’ll have to venture outside the city center. 

How many greenways are there in Upper East Side?

Since the Upper East Side is a city center location, it is heavily built-up, with few greenways within its borders. The largest park in the city is Central Park with 778-acres of land stretching from 59th Street to 110th Street. It has seven lakes within its boundaries, all of which are artificial but provide a great little escape for your furry friend. There are a few hilly locations, including Cedar Hill, Cherry Hill, and Pug Hill which are great if you’re wanting to test both you and your pup's fitness levels on some hillier terrain.

John Jay Park is located to the east of the Upper East Side. It’s a medium-sized community park that offers a playground and a few sports grounds. Dogs are allowed in the main area, so if you have your furry pal and kids in tow, it’s a great place to let everyone have some proper exercise.
