Prospect Park

Prospect Park West to Prospect Park SW,
Brooklyn, NY
Prospect Park, the Central Park of Brooklyn, has off-leash hours from 9pm -9am in the Middle and Upper Long Meadow, Nethermead, and Peninsula areas of the park. Dogs are allowed elsewhere in the park (excepting the playgrounds, zoo, bathing areas, ponds, and sports areas) so long as they are on a 6-foot leash. Several dog drinking fountains have even been installed at the base of existing drinking fountains. Dogs and their owners can be found there every morning, but weekends the numbers are in the hundreds. The first Saturday of each month FIDO, a local dog owners' advocacy group, sponsors the Prospect Park Bark, with treats for both the 2- and 4-legged participants.

We love this self-proclaimed dog-friendly locals bar in Williamsburg. And even though it says "& Cafe" this place is all about the beer, wine, and signature cocktails. The closest you're going to get to food is the stick of celery in their South 4th Bloody Mary. But we're not complaining. Take a seat at one of their pet-friendly outdoor tables and relax with your canine.
