The Open House Scorecard: Some apartments that may be worth giving up your dog for

Sure, they’re cute with their wet noses and wagging tails. But not everyone loves dogs — or at least not everyone loves dogs living in their building.

This week, the Open House Scorecard (the 10 apartments StreetEasyusers saved to their open house planners more frequently than any others last weekend) features some sweet abodes where Fido isn't welcome.

Take the $1.625 million three-bedroom co-op on West End Avenuebetween West 89th and West 90th: The apartment boasts 11 windows facing south, west and north, with a “peek of the Hudson” (how much of a peak is unclear). The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, and there's another closet that according to the listing, “serves as a virtual office space.” Amenities include a keyed elevator, video security (note, no doorman), and a live-in super.

Although felines are welcome in a $449,000 one-bedroom Brooklyn Heights co-op on Hicks Street between Pierrepont and Clark Streets in Brooklyn Heights, canines are not. The unit is located in a renovated townhouse on a tree-lined block. The building has an elevator and a shared roof-deck. Plus, it’s located near six subway lines, including the 2, 3, 4 and 5, as well as the Fulton Ferry Landing.

But if you own a dog, don’t despair. There's always this $1.675 millon two-bedroom condo on Mott Street between East Houston Street and Bleecker Street . The seventh-floor unit features a private elevator. Plus, both bedrooms lead out to private balconies (and if that's not enough there's a common roof terrace). The apartment is also equipped with in-wall speakers. Another perk: the listing notes that the unit boasts “low monthlies.”
