Uptown New York is designated as the area north of 59th street. This area is more residential than Downtown or Lower Manhattan, however, owning and parking a vehicle is difficult on crowded Manhattan Island and many residents rely on public transportation or get around on foot. There are shops and services distributed at street level throughout the neighborhoods of Uptown that residents can reach on foot with their pup. 

The weather in New York City is warmer than other areas of New York State due to its coastal location and the moderating effects of the Atlantic Ocean. The area does experience storms, cold weather, and rain which are frequent occurrences in winter. Make sure you dress appropriately for walking in winter. Spring and fall are generally more pleasant for walking. However, rain and storms can still occur and summer can be sweltering and humid, so be prepared for whatever New York weather throws at you.

Uptown is much more residential than Midtown and Downtown Manhattan. There are still plenty of high rise apartments, but there are lower story buildings, multistory apartments, and townhouses in the region. The terrain is mostly flat in most of the southern sections of Uptown, but as you travel north, the terrain becomes more variable where changes in elevation require some exertion while hiking with your hound. Landscaping, trees, and greenery are much more prevalent in Uptown with multiple large parks and residential properties that feature trees, shrubs, and garden. The area is still highly urban and developed with plenty of commercial activity, main thoroughfares, vehicle and pedestrian traffic, public transportation including subways, and historical sites. Uptown is bordered on the east side by the East River and the west by the Hudson River. Besides the many Manhattan neighborhoods located here, it is usually considered to include Marble Hill on the mainland.

The parks in Uptown are world class and unexpectedly numerous for such a highly populated urban area. Large parks in the region include Central Park, Riverbank State Park, Highbridge Park, Morningside Park, Marcus Garvey Park, Harlem River Park and Inwood Hill Park. These parks feature massive, mature trees that are spectacular in fall with autumn colors, green lawns, and miles of walking trails that go along the waterfront in some of the riverfront parks. Of particular interest to pet owners are the many excellent off-leash dog parks and runs associated with main parks or standing independently. Off-leash enclosed dog parks and runs in the region include Highbridge Dog Park, Fort Washington Park Dog Run, 142nd Street Dog Run, the Dog Run at Riverside Park, and the Andrew Haswell Green Dog Park. Whether you want to walk, hike or run with your pup, you will have plenty of options in Uptown.
