In a city that's famous for allegedly having more pets per households than children, it's always a surprise to find that a good chunk of apartments in the city don't allow your furry friends. Pet resume or not, it can be tough out there for a pet owner looking for a home that'll allow Fido. With that in mind, we thought it best to publish a map of buildings—not just units—that are pet friendly. The building pages are courtesy of our friends over at Zumper, a new apartment rental website. Some tidbits:
- Average pet rent: $500 refundable deposit + $50/month premium (variations depend on weight, breed, and number of pets)
- Pet friendly buildings are more expensive to live in. Why? Because the building isn't run by mom and pop landlords. These are institutional towers that tend to be stocked with amenities.
- The bulk of the buildings on our map were built post 1979, which means no rent control.
