Looking up at the Manhattan skyline, your daydreams begin to take shape. They’re no longer vague hopes, no, now you can see them becoming a reality. As Ol’ Blue Eyes could attest, you’re gonna start spreading the news and your vagabond shoes are longing to stay. In a city that never sleeps you can accomplish anything; will you design the next Empire State Building? Anything is possible. Skyscrapers glisten in the afternoon sun, and as you glance down at your four-legged friend, she wags her tail with approval. She would like to take a bite out of the Big Apple, too. With so many pet-friendly hotels in New York City, you may just have to stick around for a while and let her try.
Yes! You will find places for your pooch to roam free in all five boroughs. From Henry Hudson Park in the Bronx to the Juniper Valley Park in Queens and the East River Park in Manhattan, your dog Anderson Pooper will be happier than can be when he sees how many green spaces are available to him in this concrete jungle. You are also allowed to take dogs off-leash in Central Park between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. and again between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. At all other times, your pup must be on-leash but is still welcome in the park. With lots of trails and green space, spending a day with your pooch in Central Park is just about as quintessentially New York as it gets.
Yes, the Resorts World Casino in Queens is within NYC city limits. It’s the only casino in the city, and you’ll have to leave Fido at home. With so many New York pet-friendly hotels to choose from, your pooch will sleep comfortably while you win enough cash to afford a new stock pile of rawhide.
Small dogs are allowed on both the AirTrain Newark, which delivers you to Penn Station, and the Newark Liberty Airport Express. Dogs must remain in carriers. You can also get from Newark to NYC via rental car. If you plan on taking a trip to upstate New York or neighboring states while you’re on the East Coast, a rental is a good idea. If you’ll be sticking around the city, taking public transit to NYC makes the most sense; most dogs in carriers are also allowed on the NYC subway.
Whether you’re headed to the Big Apple to linger in side streets and stop in unique boutiques or explore the many dog parks, dog-friendly hotels in New York City are offer comfortable accommodation for everyone in the family.

We call that wandering wisely.
