Being a parent can be a hard road for anyone, but when your kid is furry, non-self-reliant, and occasionally sniffs your neighbor, finding the right living arrangements can be a particularly tricky business. For pet parents, finding the perfect place for the whole family can be a challenge, but those who live at 555Ten will find no trouble making themselves and their four-legged friends right at home.
One of the biggest difficulties of city life for pet owners is the lack of green space afforded to them. For most New Yorkers, the closest plant life is the tiny patch of grass surrounding the trees on the sidewalk, and most homes with convenient park access are scooped up before they even hit the market. However, for 555Ten residents, the building’s location lends itself perfectly to pet ownership. Just a minute away is Hudson River Park, which extends for miles along Manhattan’s west side, offering an ideal spot to get fit with Fido. While most city parks offer a meager patch of grass where dogs can play off-leash, Hudson River Park boasts a whopping four dog park where your pet can play with their pals and expend some energy. For joggers, the park is the perfect spot for a run; with breezes coming off the Hudson, it’s always cooler than the parks in the city’s center, and this somewhat hidden gem never draws the intense crowds that descend on Central or Riverside Parks.
If you’re looking to treat your pup after a long day running around, 555Ten is in the ideal neighborhood to do so; within just a few blocks of home, you’ll find Spoiled Brats, a pet store catering to virtually any need your pup might have, from cute outfits to chew toys. For those special occasions, head to Dog Cakes for Dogs on 54th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues, where they’ll create customized portrait cakes for your pet, ensuring their birthday or adoption anniversary is just as special to them as it is to you. And when your pet needs to look their absolute best, whether they’re posing for your holiday card or serving as a ring bearer in your wedding, nearby Towne House Grooming will ensure Fluffy or Fido is no less than red carpet-ready.
Fortunately, the fun for both you and your pet doesn’t stop back at home, either. Inside 555Ten, Throw Me a Bone has created a pet paradise, offering in-building care for your precious pup, allowing him or her to make friends and learn new skills from the company’s hands-on-staff. On those days when the weather just isn’t in your favor, you can rest assured that your doggo is still getting plenty of exercise, thanks to 555Ten’s covered outdoor dog park, where your pooch can run to their heart’s content. Pet owners with a cat at home won’t be disappointed, either; each home at 555Ten has oversized windows offering city views — and plenty of birds — sure to delight your feline friends.
