Default What are the Best Neighboorhoods in NY for Large Dogs

I have two Large Dogs one German Shepard and the other a Rottiwelier there home trained very friendly dogs btw. What are the best areas & rentals, Apartments, Condo's and etc in Manhattan that are pet friendly I came across a few places that won't even accept specifically there breed/type.
And are there any neighborhoods with backyards where they can run around and poop I saw a brownstone in Harlem that looked decent although small yet
I'm considering other options.

Many apartments have restrictions on the size of dogs that can live there. A German shepherd and a rottweiler won't be welcome at those buildings, but there's no specific area where they're more likely to be welcome.

Most brownstones are either privately owned or divided into rentals and if you don't rent/own the ground floor, access to the garden usually doesn't go with the housing. And if you have a building with a common garden, dogs are often not permitted. And if dogs ARE permitted in a common garden, you'd have to ensure they don't 'do' anything there.

Sorry to sound so pessimistic but that's the reality of large dogs in NYC. There are some wonderful buildings that allow dogs of all sizes, but that usually comes with a premium rent.

Pls Share about these wonderful buildings that allow dogs of all sizes, I wouldn't mind paying more for my beloveit pets!,

I was checking out these two places, share your opinions on it - Rental, For Rent Manhattan Harlem $10,000 and Rental, For Rent Manhattan Harlem $10,000 (They allow pets)

I have a question is the rent for the whole building or a portion? and hows Harlem address/neighborhood if your familiar with the area?


If that dosen't work I'll go with my other options that's probably more conducive to own a house in the NY tri-state areas

I would check the NY Times real estate search (for rentals).

On 57th St. and First Ave (400 East 57th St) is a rental building that permits all sizes of dogs. And there are many others. You just have to look.

Trump Place is pet friendly if you don't mind living on the UWS. It's on Riverside Drive in the higher 80s, and is a complex of newer buildings with great river and/or city views amid landscaped grounds and with proximity to Riverside Park. The 3BRs are about 1800 square feet or so, not huge, but well planned with a large MBR suite an open living/dining room arrangement. If memory serves, the buildings are managed by Equity, so you would not need to pay a broker's fee.

The buildings look like they could really work, but Manhattan above Mount Sinai on the east side and 110th on the UWS is still an area of transition. Some blocks are great, and others are not. Of the two, I'd stick with Brownstone Harlem on 118th.

I would not recommend the second property because it's closer to St. Nicholas Park/CUNY- City College, which is a neigborhod that has its share of problems, especially at night. There are several projects in the immediate vicinity.

There are projects on 112th at 5th as well, close to the first house, but the first house is closer to the UWS and you could avoid heading towards 5th, but there are still parts of the immediate area that are transitional. You're also close to the north end of Central Park, which can be great for dogs, too, but at night, I'd be cautious about walking around the neighborhood, which is something that one has to take into account in many areas, even the good ones.

FOUR bedrooms? You'd be better off outside Manhattan. You never mentioned your budget or whether you're buying or renting. That information would help us help you much more.

A lot of the landlords in Wash Heights don't seem to care too much about bigger dogs, or if they do you can usually "work something out," with the super . Also some of those apartments out there are huge so they are better suited for large dogs.
