Dog-Friendly Amenities That’ll Have Your Best Friend’s Tail Wagging

December 2021

Got a four-legged friend who constantly needs impressing? The amenities at 555TEN are so dog-friendly, their tail will never stop wagging. This part of Midtown Manhattan has some pooch-perfect shops and facilities, too. It’s time we went for walkies.

Parks on Your Doorstep

When you live at 555TEN, you are surrounded by pocket parks that are wonderful for dog walking. Both DeWitt Clinton Park and Bryant Park are just 15 minutes from these Midtown rentals. Then, there’s Hudson River Park — ideal for a bracing waterfront stroll — which is equipped with a dog run, where your furry friend can be let off the leash, meet new pals, and chase tennis balls to their heart’s content. 

Covered Outdoor Dog Park

There are times when you and your pooch would rather not stray too far for your morning exercise — especially when you get to the chillier, wetter end of the year. That’s when 555TEN’s covered outdoor dog park comes into its own. Without even leaving your Midtown NYC apartment building, you can play all your favorite games together, and never feel a drop of rain. 

A Spot of Shopping

It’s not just you who needs retail therapy from time to time — your dog does, too. Within a few minutes’ walk of your Midtown West apartment, there are plenty of great little boutiques to keep your furry friend happy. Buy the cutest puffer jackets and quilted coats from Dog & Co. Find Philly cheesesteak dog treats at Zoe’s. Pick up snazzy leashes and a snuggly new bed from Spoiled Brats. 

A Trip to the Museum

When we say Midtown Manhattan is devoted to dogs, we really mean it. Just 15 minutes on the subway from 555TEN gets you to the AKC Museum of the Dog. Here, you can peruse paintings of pooches, learn about the lives of working dogs, and even find out which breed you yourself would be! Something to bear in mind: Your own pooch can’t come in. Better book them that blueberry facial instead.
