I arrive to a NYC High Rise with my fellow blogger and friend, Christy (who took these fabulous pictures that you are about to see http://www.lifeofamodernhousewife.com). As we walk into a beautiful high rise not expecting anything but first class, keeping with the reputation of the well known Kips Bay Show House, right away we notice there are lots of large dogs that are coming and going from this building. Since we are animal lovers and we both have large dogs, I have a sad thought about the kind of life these pups must have with no back yard and living in an “apartment”. I will admit, I didn't feel sorry for the dogs for long. This is what I saw:

Here is part of the outdoor seating area with the pool sitting behind. It was a rainy day.
Additional outdoor seating.We were told that many of the homeowners add grass and trees to their balconies. Which made me realize --- any dog would be LUCKY to call this place home.
