Go for the full experience ticket because some exhibits (typically the newer ones) are extra. Enclosures are large spacious for the animals. We travelled by subway from Times Square which takes about 50 mins and costs $3.00...can be tough if you are standing but there...More

The Bronx Zoo is fantastic. The prices are reasonable, the parking is bountiful, and the exhibits are fantastic. My family and I come 4-5x/yr and love it. It is very quiet inside despite the fact that it is right next to several major highways.

Get there early so you don't have to wait on line. It's a sprawling park so lots of places to stroll. Some of the really popular exhibits can get very crowded. Enjoy. It's amazing.

Not worth going as a lot is closed in winter and most animals aren't visible
