“Kids loved the zoo!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Our kids loved the zoo. Not big but big enough to last about two hours. The animals varied and there is a Children's petting zoo too. The monkeys and penguins really have human characteristics and either hid from the camera or really put on a show. The staff were very knowledgable and friendly.

“Beautiful Day for a Stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Enjoyable time walking through Central Park on way to the Met. of Art. Only complaint was the piles of dog feces all over the place. They should make dog owners clean up after their pooches or face fines. Very disgusting.

“A wonderland bathed in magical snow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

What a fantastic sight - we have been to central park before but an added bonus was the overnight fall of snow - children tobogganing, people skiing, kids screaming with joy, it was truly a wonderful magical sight and, although our flight home was delayed, we were glad to have experienced it in such a special way.
