You just have to ask when you call- I have an 85 lb pit that was welcome in a range of apartments in Brooklyn that I looked at. Most apartments in Brooklyn are more concerned with the size of the dog than the breed.

Good Luck! I have been involved in Pit Bull rescue and know only too well about the biased attitudes towards this dogs.

is there any regulations in nyc about pit bulls? where i currently live they are banned for new dogs, and if you do have them currently you have to have a 6ft fence around your yard or a kennel (not so much applicable in NYC though) and if you take them outside the leash has to be some certain standard and has to have a muzzle on.

There are no regulations that do not apply to every dog in the city- which is they must be current on vaccines and be licensed. My dog is both. And thank god there are no stupid regulations like the ones you described above lol.

I find that NYC is a very pit friendly city. There are at least 9 in my building that I can think of, and many many more in my neighborhood. There are plenty of people who are afraid of them- I've even had people cross the street mid block when they see us coming. I think as long as you are a responsible owner and respect the fact that not everyone is going to want to be near your dog (or have their dog near your dog) then you're good to go. 9 out of 10 people love mine, and the other 1 out of 10 just tend to ignore her. That said, my dog is incredibly well trained and responsive to me on the leash, and I keep her on a fairly short leash at all times (again, due to the fact that not everyone wants a slobbery 85 lb pit coming to say hi as they walk by).

Fun story though on how accepting most people around here are- on Halloween every year my block closes and has this huge street fair thing and they put on a play- it's always PACKED with people. I took my dog last year with a friend to watch the play. I was standing talking and my dog was sitting down next to me. I look down and there is a 3 year old little girl literally hanging off my dogs head, while Ella (dog) sat there patiently and kissed the kids face a few times. The little girl's mother ran over, and started taking pictures instead of pulling her kid off and freaking out. lol. No prejudice at all.

And to the OP, I'm not the best at suggesting neighborhoods. Brooklyn is huge and very diverse, and it's possible to get within an hour of the city in nearly all locations. I would suggest you do a search on here, as he topic of neighborhood suggestions has come up often.

that makes me love NYC even more! just about every where in michigan is banning pit bulls. My neighbor breeds them and his trained amazingly. he doesn't even need a leash for them. He said though if any of his breeding dogs ever turns bad he's cutting it from breeding so that only a passive dog is bred with another passive dog. which is how it should be.

although i'll be honest, we had a huge storm that blew through, and it blew open his gate that was locked, and his two pits got out. me and my girlfriend happened to be walking down the street at the time and they started "chasing" after us. lucky for us my house is right there so we ran into the backyard and closed the gate.
We didn't know he even had pits, because they never bark, and it turns out that they just wanted to play, because after he said they're names they went running back to him and afterwards we played with them
