Pet Friendly

StuyTown is Pet-Friendly

StuyTown (formerly known as PCVST) is a pet-friendly property. Four-legged friends are most welcome, but to ensure the best possible living experience for all of our residents, we ask that ALL pet owners register their dogs and adhere strictly to our pet policies.

New Protocols

We are pleased to announce a new way of identifying registered dogs on property which will allow our Public Safety staff to easily recognize registered dogs and more effectively enforce StuyTown's dog policies. Management will be providing new lanyards which residents should now use with their Dog ID Tag on the end and clipped onto the handle of the leash so that it is easily visible. After April 30th, 2016, anyone walking a dog on property without a lanyard and tag will be escorted off of property, including dog walkers.

Lanyards and clips will be available for pickup at the Management Office at 276 1st Avenue Loop and Public Safety at 2 Stuyvesant Oval. If your dog is already registered, simply show your dog’s tag to the receptionist at either office and they’ll give you a lanyard, clip, and a few other dog goodies. If you have yet to register your dog, please see instructions below.
