Wag! Walkers know Washington Heights

The Washington Heights neighborhood is a residential area located in the northern part of the island of Manhattan. This community is accessible to other parts of the island via major arteries and the subway, and to New Jersey via the George Washington Bridge. There are many services, both within and around the Washington Heights neighborhood, including schools, hospitals, shops, and restaurants. Pet services in the area include veterinary care and pet supply shops.聽

For those who would like a walking destination, to enjoy a cool drink or bite to eat with their canine companion, some local eateries offer pet-friendly outdoor tables.聽Remember that patio seating is subject to availability, and weather permitting. The weather in Manhattan, New York can vary depending on the season, and conditions on the northeastern seaboard. Summers tend to be hot and humid and winters cool, but more temperate than the rest of the state, and usually above freezing, although some cold snaps and snow are possible. Washington Heights experiences its fair share of overcast and rainy days, and storms are possible year around, especially in the cooler months, when severe weather from Atlantic weather systems can occur.

Washington Heights is a very interesting community. Located on an elevated area near the highest point on the island of Manhattan, this community features some steep terrain聽and fantastic lookouts. The park area in the north, which features the Cloisters Museum and Gardens, is built on a series of bluff and cliffs. The entire area features many multi-story residences with unique architecture, and some very medieval looking, castle-inspired buildings and facades 聽The area is serviced by concrete staircases and subway elevators to negotiate the changes in elevation and steep terrain.聽

Most apartments and condo buildings are several stories high, and there are quite a few trees on the pedestrian walkways in this beautiful area, providing shade to passersby. This is a high traffic area, as Washington Heights is the location of the world鈥檚 busiest motor vehicle bridge, the George Washington Bridge, connecting the island of Manhattan to New Jersey.
