Just went to the Bronx Zoo last week. Even though school groups visit daily, timing your visit will be most helpful. The school groups arrive before 10AM, but seem to leave by 1PM. The "Petting Zoo" section of the children's Zoo just reopened after being closed for the past year. Our 3 grandsons were delighted with the animals there. There... More

The Bronx Zoo is the largest zoo in the US and probably the best. You can spend the entire day here so wear comfortable shoes.

New Yorkers cautioned us about traveling to the Bronx to get to the Zoo. Do not listen. It was one of our best days in NYC. The Zoo grounds are beautiful and walking in nature after spending so much time in the Manhattan concrete jungle was refreshing both physically and mentally. Their silverback gorilla exhibit is absolutely world-class. TIP: even... More

There is so much to see, and the zoo is quite large, so make sure to allow plenty of time and wear comfortable shoes. All the exhibits are pretty good but my personal favourites are Madagascar!, the Congo Gorilla Forest and the Wild Asia Monorail ride. l arrived when the zoo opened and spent around six hours and didn't manage...

The zoo is easily accessible by the number 2 train. Be prepared for ALOT of walking including some hills. I highly recommend the total experience tickets, you'll be missing out on a lot if you don't. Zoo boo is cute too. You can easily spend the whole day here!!

On Tuesday, Oct 14,2014 my family and I tool the grandkids to the zoo. The kids had a great time but were totally disappointed with the Dinosaurs. Field Station is much better for dino lovers. We were at the park from open to close and in that time saw no workers picking up trash. Some of the garbage cans were... More

The Bronx zoo has great attractions and the membership is really worth it! The kids love doing the Africa monorail, and there is a special children s zoo, where you can get a bit closer to the animals and the exhibits are sized for kids. The butterfly exhibit is also beautiful. During the summer, there is a free concert series... More

Relaxed atmosphere and plenty of attractions. Clean park. Easy parking as well. Also well laid out so that you can see everything at the Zoo.
