christina: In Brooklyn, two of many dog friendly communities are Fort Greene and Clinton Hill...(In Fort Greene, I felt out of the loop NOT having a dog!)
Here are some sites you may find helpful:
my favorite! they publish a calendar each year featuring local Fort Greene pups. one of the most beautiful sites is watching the dogs run free and play during off-leash hours.
Mark: we have a dog and a place up by prospect park. they have off leash dog hours where it seems every dog from the tri-state area comes to frolic in the park. It is dog heaven. If you are looking in Brooklyn, I'd highly recommend a place by the park.
djk: Think Brooklyn unless you can pay at least $2,000.
MJ: Prime brooklyn (ie. Fort Greene, Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo, Park Slope, Cobble Hill) Is no cheaper than Manhattan these days. Sorry
katrina: f you need to fly to nyc to check out places, i just saw today that jet blue is running a special on its new route between nyc and boston, $25 each way between jfk and logan!!
