Few options for letting your dog run free in Rockville Centre
(Page 2 of 2)

Judy Lauterstein and her pug, Chicky, take walks at the Hempstead Lake State Park nearly every day to stay healthy and release energy.

“There are a lot of walking trails that are fantastic for the dogs,” said Judy Lauterstein, a Rockville Centre resident who, along with her pug, Chicky, goes to the park nearly every day. “It’s good for them to socialize and I think it makes her healthier. It’s like a park right outside your doorstep.”

The AvalonBay apartment complex in the village is pet friendly, and constructed a dog walk around the facility for its residents, but even there the dogs need to be leashed. And being pet friendly bucks a trend in the local community.

“Pet friendly is more likely in a house rental as opposed to an apartment complex,” said Anthony Curatola of Exit Links Realty. “Avalon is unique in that it’s offering so much to people. They are trying to attract very high-end renters.”

Chris Capece, development director of AvalonBay communities, said that their apartment complexes are designed to provide multiple quality amenities.
