Here at CitySites New York we understand that your pets are a part of your family. Unfortunately, finding an apartment in NYC that allows you do bring your pets along (especially larger pets) can be difficult. There are some (landlords and tenants) who believe that pets shouldn't be allowed in any rental or lease situation.
The good news is that the majority of people do not feel this way. Most people love animals, and realize that most pets are not noisy or destructive and can live amicably in an apartment setting.
The bad news is that it may be hard to find a place to live that allows pets if you don't know where to look. One reason is that people who find a place where their pets are welcome are resistant to moving because they are not sure what they might find out there. So some pet friendly locations never go back on the market once they are rented. Another reason is that sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the oil. Landlords are like most people - they don't like to deal with complaints. So if one person in a building complains enough about pets making too much noise the landlord may decide to change the policy for all tenants and not allow pets in the future.
That's where CitySites NY comes in.

In many instances we know right off the bat what types of pets may or may not be allowed in a certain property, and if not, we can certainly find the answer for you quickly.
