There are more than 1,000,000 pets that call New York City home, including 600,000 dogs. Bring your four-legged friend along the next time you visit – there are enough pet-friendly activities and attractions to keep you both busy for days! Stay with Choice Hotels and enjoy NYC with the locals and their dogs in places like:
There is no better way to take in the sights and skylines of New York City than with a stroll along the Brooklyn Bridge. Join crowds of fellow pedestrians and dog owners in crossing the iconic bridge over the East River. Bring a camera, as there are plenty of photo opportunities as you follow the wooden walkway elevated over traffic. The walk lasts about 20-40 minutes in each direction. While the trip should not drain you or your dog, there are benches along the way if you need rest.
New York is a mecca of culture, especially when it comes to the arts. Here you will find the most unique and prized collections in the world. The William Secord Gallery is truly one-of-a-kind, specializing in 19th century dog paintings, works on pages and bronzes. Of course, well-behaved dogs are welcome to enjoy the art and are even treated to cookies and water! Do not leave without getting a portrait done of your dog from one of the on-site painters for a souvenir not found anywhere else!
Visiting between Fall and Spring? The city is home to several beaches equipped with boardwalks for leisurely strolls for you and your dog. Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn and South Beach in Staten Island are well-known and loved by locals and visitors. Especially popular is Coney Island, famous for its food stands and nonstop fun and games along its boardwalk. During season, leashed dogs are allowed on the sand – just be careful by the water!
A visit to New York is not complete without taking advantage of its world-famous shopping scene. And there is no need to leave your furry friend behind to do so! As long as your dog is on a leash or in a purse, you both can enjoy the Time Warner Center, an upscale indoor mall located near Central Park.
With dog ownership being so popular among New Yorkers, you can expect a whole wealth of dog-friendly activities at your disposal. Make a reservation with Choice Hotels in NYC, where the comfy rooms and friendly staff will be just as welcoming to your pooch. Although you are out and about in “The City That Never Sleeps”, you will be glad to have a place to rest your feet (and paws) once you are ready to retire. Book now.
