    Hudson River Park (North Chelsea) Dog RunLocated at Pier 84 near West 44th Street. This is a smaller run but right on the water and right next to the USS Intrepid. What other dog run can say that?

    • Neighborhood: Midtown West
    • Ground: Hard surface with drainage

    • Yelp Review: http://www.yelp.com/biz/pier-84-new-york
    • Tips: Yes, that is the USS Intrepid next to the dog run. There is an indoor/outdoor restaurant and bar called P.D. O’Hurleys right outside of the dog run where you can grab some food and drink. Running water is provided in warmer months. It’s way west, but once you are over there you can walk up and down the Westside Hudson River Parkway, which goes from battery Park City up to at least 59th Street. You can even hit multiple dog runs along the way including this one, the Chelsea Waterside Park and the Leroy Street Dog Run.

    Madison Square Park Dog Run: Located in Madison Square Park near 5th Avenue and 24th street. Also known as Jemmy’s Dog Run. This is a nice dog run on the west side of Madison Square Park that is fairly large in size and has two sections. Note that dogs are not allowed on the grass lawns (even on leash) in Madison Square Park, just in the dog run.

    • Neighborhood: Flatiron, Gramercy, Madison Square Park
    • Ground: Gravel and dirt

    • Tips: The run can get muddy though so it is not a great spot to go after heavy rains. They supply waste bags in the dog run and there are benches with umbrellas. The backdrop of the architecturally stunning Flatiron Building and the Met Life Clock Tower add to the atmosphere and of course there is the Shake Shack right there in Madison Square Park where you can pick up some lunch for yourself and a special Pooch-ini treat for your dog. The dog run hours are the same as Madison Square Park (~6am-11pm)
