If you live in the Northeast the end of February has simply been amazing and unbelievable. This past Saturday was 63 degrees. We met our daughter in Brooklyn and said 'hey its like spring...let's go to the zoo'. I'm so glad we did. First, I know that all the animals are not out as that the temperature is not constant...

I am a member of the NY WCS so I am biased. I can not put into words how much I love this place. Worth the money

My fiance and I decided to check out this zoo while vacationing in New York City. We are amazed at the selection of animals available for view! I was able to take some amazing pictures of the polar bear. There are no zoos where we live (Upstate NY) that has such a selection of animals (like the rhino, polar bear,... More

Went along with my cousins, sister,aunt,uncle and some friends. The day went by quick, there's a lot to see. The animals are so cute There can be crowds at times. Food sources are near by and if you don't want to spend money come along with your food. Got good picnic spots to relax and spend quality family time.

Every time I'm here I can't get enough of it. This is great for the kids to learn and explore. My 1 year old loved it, it has activities for all ages and it has really go restaurants available. A must see if you have kids that love animals.

This place is huge with many, many varieties of animal species even though we went in the winter. We saw black leopards, polar bears, and peacocks to name a few. Make sure to grab a map and mark off the areas you've visited, you don't want to miss anything. It is too easy to get lost in the zoo. We... More

I live very close to NYC and have been here numerous times. This is a beautiful large zoo. I especially love the interactive children's zoo, the carousel which is made of entirely of insects instead of horses, and the world of birds. Plan to spend an entire day here.

I go to The Bronx Zoo almost every year. I go with my wife and we love it. There is a lot of walking so wear comfortable sneakers. I love to see the tigers and sea lions. Very good for kids who love to see animals. Children Petting Zoo is great with many things to learn. You must visit when... More

We went in Winter so that accounts why we saw hardly anyone or any animals. We also went on a Wednesday( the supposed free day) but was pressured into giving a donation. I am glad its was Wednesday and not any other day and paid full price as we hardly saw any animals. Plus if you want to see the... More
