Dog-friendly buildings
« on: April 16, 2017, 10:17:46 AM »
My husband and I are looking to buy in Jackson Heights, but we've got a large (~80 pound) dog who I fear might become an issue when it comes to getting board approval. Does anyone know of co-ops in the neighborhood that seem big-dog friendly?
Thanks!

in the hopes of contributing "addition by subtraction," i can advise you to eliminate the Warwick. Our board outlawed dogs of all sizes a few years ago.

^^If you have a realtor who knows the neighborhood well, he/she should be able to give you an idea of the buildings that are good with bigger dogs. PM me and I'll be happy to give you a recommendation for the agent we used who seemed super informed.

When I looked I had a cat and no interest in a bigger dog so I can't offer much advice. There does seem to be a fair number of bigger dogs in the neighborhood though, so I'm hopeful for you the ones I see don't all live in the same building near me. :)

come to think of it, i've seen street friends - you know, the people you see daily and stop to chat with, though you're not super close - take dogs into Hawthorne Court.

I live in one of the Hawthorne buildings, and no dogs are allowed.

Dunolly Gardens allows dogs, but there's a weight limit.

Fillmore Hall (35th/83rd) allows dogs. No weight limit to my knowledge.

In addition to those named above, here are some other dog-friendly buildings in JH.  As a dog owner myself, I'm sensitive to this issue, and always ask potential buyers about their pets.  I would argue that buildings that allow dogs benefit as far as higher prices -- after all, if you lose the dog-owner as a potential buyer, your "demand" decreases.

The Berkeley allows dogs with no size restriction.  So do the Wilshire and Somerset.  As do some of the Hampton and Linden Cts.  And these also allow dogs of any size:  Elbertson, Fildor Hall, Roosevelt Terrace, the Belvedere and both Belvedere East and West.

If you don't have a realtor who knows the rules, one way to find out by yourself is to go to the websites for the various Management Companies -- Lovett, Metro, Wavecrest, etc. and search for the House Rules.  These typically contain all the things you want to know about pets and other issues.  You can also search the address on Streeteasy, and see if pets are or are not allowed.  (This won't give you any size limit, but it's a decent way to begin your search.)

if you search for JH listings on streeteasy.com you can search for buildings that allow pets. That can give you a good idea.

Terrace View is just not people friendly.

Chateau varies by building: I know some have a weight limit, mine does not.
