I've been going to the zoo for over 50 years. When they did the renovation and expansion years ago it became a must see place. When the children were younger I was a member for 5 or 6 years and went 10-12 times a year including all member nights and function. My favorite time to go is after a significant... More

Whatever your views are of zoos. They serve a purpose. This is by far the best zoo I have been to. The snow leopards are truly stunning! I was shocked how quiet the zoo was. We have been to London zoo and it doesn't seem to get quiet. If in New York this is worth a visit. And highly recommend... More

This place could take you days to tour. The train rides, the food, the animals. Wonderful place to visit. FREE one day a week.

The more I read about zoos and aquariums the more suspicious I am of them, however the Bronx zoo really has to be up there with the best I have ever been too. The enclosure are very large and seem natural the animals seem content and the whole staff seem very knowledgable. My wife is a massive fan of zoos... More

My husband and I took our 15 year old son and 14 year old nephew to the city for the long weekend. The kids had never been to the Bronx Zoo so we thought we would take them as we had fond memories of the place ourselves. We arrived at 10am on a chilly day. The animals we clean and... More

Avoid this Zoo! The grounds are nasty and dirty. They need a pressure wash bad! It's absolutely disgusting to see the way this place has diminished over the years! I wonder if the animals are being treated humanely ? They collect a fair amount of money to up keep this place so I'm not sure what the issue is but... More

So much to see and the best part was the gorilla exhibit. We also liked the monorail which we almost missed due to weather. We were there all day and were literally rained out of there! The only bad thing was the staff didn't try to help anyone and everyone was on their own. They forget they have tourists and... More

We have lived all over the US and been to many zoo's - this is one of our favorites. Large walk ways, treed for summer high temperatures, big enclosures for the animals, just a wonderful way to spend a day ;)
