Despite the abundance of parks and dog runs around the city, NYC's limited space, electric pacing, and occasionally pet-unfriendly landlords can be tough on both pet owners and their furry friends. This week, the The Agency team rounds up seven studio and one-bedroom apartments specially outfitted for animal lovers, with features like in-building grooming spas, on-site dog walkers and sitters, and veterinary services.
To make things easier on the humans actually handling the apartment hunt, The Agency, a tech-savvy brokerage whose agents are paid bonuses based on your satisfaction, eliminates many of the annoyances usually associated with a NYC apartment search. You can search the same listings the pros are searching right on the The Agency site, and instead of emailing a dozen different brokers, see all your picks with a single agent. Once you’ve signed your lease, The Agency keeps the perks coming, with exclusive deals on moving companies, cleaners, delivery services and more. In keeping with the firm's ethical ethos, The Agency donates a portion of every brokerage fee to the housing charity Rebuilding Together NYC, so for each person they help find a home, a family in need can stay in theirs.
