 Ultra Luxury Manhattan Apartments.

When people think of New York, they usually think of Manhattan, which is an island barely 12 miles long and 2 miles wide. This island is the main tourist area in the city and where most visitors stay. Manhattan consists of many neighborhoods. New York City is very densely populated but is surprisingly dog-friendly. Although you can’t take your dog to a Broadway Show there are a surprising number of things you and your visiting or resident dog can do together.

 

Visitors and residents of Manhattan often want to shop the large and famous stores. In New York, many of these stores are pet friendly stores including Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany’s, Restoration Hardware and Polo Ralph Lauren. Please check with the individual stores before bringing your dog in, as policies in stores often do change. We have found that if you ask at a lot of New York stores they will welcome your dog. Especially smaller ones but even larger dogs on leash are often welcome. Especially dog-friendly is the Time Warner Shopping Center, an indoor mall on Columbus Circle at 8th Avenue and 59th Street.

 

Dog-friendly Shopping Center near your apartment in Manhattan.

This shopping center is at the south west corner of Central Park so it is a great place to shop following a walk in Central Park with your dog.  Also, your leashed dog can go with you to the outdoor South Street Seaport near the Brooklyn Bridge. If you want to dine with your dog in New York, you will need to find a patio restaurant with seats on the sidewalk. There are many dog-friendly restaurants, and you can ask any restaurant you see that has sidewalk seating if your dog is welcome.


One thing that dogs like to do is to walk the Brooklyn Bridge for the scenery. There are guided walking tours of lower Manhattan that welcome dogs. The Central Park carriage rides welcome dogs accompanying you. You can take your dog to the grounds of the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site on East 20th Street, the General Grant National Monument and the Federal Hall National Memorial outside. Or for a closer look you can take your small dog on the Staten Island Ferry to Staten Island or any size dog on the Seastreak Ferry to New Jersey. The William Secord Art Gallery at 52 East 76th Street welcomes your leashed dog with you. But Manhattan is above all a walking town, which your dog will probably like. You can view the famous landmarks, the Empire State Building, Grand Central, Madison Square Garden and the awesome New York skyline from the street with your dog.

Off-Leash Dog Parks

New York City has more off-leash dog parks than any other city in the United States. There are off-leash dog parks in all areas of the city. The dog parks are free and no permits are required. Leashed dogs are allowed in Central Park, the huge green rectangle in the center of the map of Manhattan. The Canine Court is located in Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx and includes an agility course. If your dog wants to swim in New York, you can go to the Prospect Park Dog Beach in Brooklyn. This is a man made concrete beach. This beach is fenced. As far as Atlantic Ocean beaches are concerned dogs are not allowed on the sand at any NYC beach from May 1 to September 30. During the rest of the year, dogs are allowed on the Sand at some of the New York Beaches, including Rockaway Beach, Coney Island and some other beaches. Leashed dogs are allowed on the boardwalks and promenade at Coney Island, Brighton, Midland, South and Manhattan Beaches year round.

Nothing compares to pool 🙂

A couple of months ago, I decided to move to an apartment in Manhattan (btw you can check it here http://www.silvertowers.com/nyc-apartments-amenities/swimming-pool-gym-health-fitness ), but not just any apartment. To me, amenities really make the difference, so I decided to search for an apartment  with pool and of course and rent it with no fee. That way I would save lots of money (and believe me when I say LOTS is LOTS) and organize an amazing pool party with my friends. That was kind of a dream I am now making come true!

 

So I decided to write down tips and ideas of how to organize my unique pool party with a barbecue! (Yes! the best combination of all time!)

It´s summer, it´s hot, it Rocks!!! Wooow! So what do we need apart from fresh delicious meat and vegetables?

Making a pool party in your NYC apartment with pool.

 

  • Think of original invitations. Yes, do it the old way! Not just sending an email or WhatsApp, that´s boring! Think about the number of friends you are planning to invite and create personalized invitations.  Maybe with a funny quote and a picture. Use your imagination and do it your own way.

 

  • Fresh fruits to make spectacular cocktails and drinks. My friends and I are over 21, so yes! We can prepare a couple of drinks and have a great time! Cosmopolitan, Dirty Martini or Tequila Sunrise are great options! You can also prepare non-alcoholic juices, using seasonal fruits. Lots of color, ice and straws will make your day!

 

  • Think of colorful decoration. We have different ways of doing this, buying balloons, streamers, color glasses and everything it takes to bring life to your party! Also, you can create funny animals with your fruits. Turtles, crocodiles or whales are just some ideas. You can use watermelon spine to create a shell and cut it till you give it shape. Come on! Bring out the artist in you!

 

  • Pool Toys, this is mandatory! People not only love to swim and jump into the pool but also to use toys! Squirt guns, swimming noodles, and diving items can be some ideas, also if you are up to sports use a volleyball net. The idea is to have fun all the possible ways!

 

  • Music!! – Unmissable!! What´s a party if there´s no music in the air? Is it not a party, right? So prepare your best music selection with the top songs of the moment and get ready to spend a wonderful time!!!

 

 

So here are my 5 tips to prepare the party of your life at New York City apartments with pool!!! Now it´s my turn! But I don´t mind if you copy my ideas! So go ahead and just like me, make your day!!

Have a wonderful day!
