Hello all!

I am a Phoenix native who has been living in Dallas for the last two years. I will be moving to NYC in the spring for work and am looking for advice about where to live. My office is located right in the heart of midtown, on 50th and Park.

I love the atmosphere of Chelsea/West Village area. My hesitation to living there is that I think my commute may be a little long for me. I would love to live closer to the office, so I can have a shorter commute and therefore leave my dogs at home for as short a period of time as possible. If possible it would be great to be able to head home for lunch to let them out.

As I said however, I really like Chelsea/West Village, and am not sure if there is an area near my office that has a similar vibe to it. I'm fully committed to hiring a dog walker and doing doggie day care once in a while. Primarily I want to make sure I live in a dog-friendly neighborhood (close to parks, pet supply store, etc.).

Right now I think I want to live in Manhattan, but a couple people have mentioned to me that Brooklyn may be good. So feel free to try to persuade me :-).

Also, I'm just curious about how people with dogs get by in general in NYC. I have two medium sized ones: 35 and 55 lbs. I don't currently plan on bringing my car with me. We will walk plenty, but what do people do if they NEED to drive somewhere with their dogs? Rent a car? I've heard a bit about zipcar; do people do that? Will I have problems finding an apartment that is OK with such large dogs?

Thanks to all of you for the advice!

I think it was a good article though to show the OP the reality of what he is in for.

Yes, and so long as you're whacking side of your head, knock yourself out.


No sense in starting a new thread and many may have the same question. It also shows that while perhaps difficult it isn't unheard of nor impossible to get an apartment in NYC (including Manhattan) that will accept larger breeds of dogs.
