Staten Island is one of the boroughs of New York City. It is the least inhabited district and also the furthest away from the city center. There are many parks and even beaches, which is perfect if you are bringing your pet with you.
Staten Island is also known as the borough of parks, thanks to its numerous green spaces. Popular ones are Clove Lakes, Silver Lake, and High Rock. Todt Hill is a small hill on Staten Island and the highest point of New York City. Moreover, it is part of the Staten Island Greenbelt: a system of parkland and natural areas. Because of this, you can freely run around with your dog. Please note that Dogs have to be on leash at all times, unless in a designated dog run or off-leash area.
On the East Shore of Staten Island, you will find the South Beach-Franklin Delano Roosevelt Boardwalk, or simply the F.D.R. Boardwalk. It runs along the beach, which comes in handy on a hot summer day, when you still want to spend time by the sunny beach but out of the sun. Dogs are allowed from the first of October until May first. Plus, there is also an off-leash area.
After running around outdoors, it is time to eat something. Staten Island is home to numerous pet-friendly restaurants that will let your furry friend join at an outdoor table. Drop in at Standard Burger for a handcrafted all-American burger, or try out the range of beers and scotches at d.b.a..
