Rental Building News and Offers

277 Fifth Avenue via Kenneth Chen 277 Fifth Avenue via Kenneth Chen
New York has always been a city full of animal lovers, but that got taken to new levels during the pet adoption boom of the coronavirus pandemic. Taking the dog for a walk gave New Yorkers a reason to go outside during lockdown, and there is now so much more to do with your furry friend than a simple visit to the dog park. While pets are not allowed inside bars and restaurants, the Open Restaurants program allows those eating outside to dine with their dogs. Additionally, as many of us start to look beyond summer to spooky season, dog lovers are marking their calendars for the Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade, the city's most famous canine costume competition, scheduled for Saturday, October 22.
As New York has one of the country's highest dog ownership rates, its officials are taking notice. At the beginning of the year, Governor Hochul signed legislation banning insurance companies from discriminating against homeowners based on the breed of dog they own. More recently, in line with the “adopt, don’t shop” philosophy, the New York State Legislature passed a bill banning the sale of dogs and other animals in pet shops in July 2022, and it is now awaiting Governor Hochul's signature. But that is not to say that New Yorkers can't get a dog anymore — Bideawee is hosting a pet adoption drive on Saturday, August 27.
Dog ownership statistics NYC Dog ownership data (World Population Review)
Earlier this summer, an analysis by Zillow and Rover found that pets have a significant impact on their owners' real estate decisions. Their list of dog-friendliest locales largely comprised mid-size cities and suburbs, but New York City should not be counted out. A number of developers and landlords have recognized the power of the "pet parent" and are starting to put in amenities and services to accommodate four-legged residents as well as two-legged. Below, see the most pet-friendly buildings in New York City.
