The zoo is truly Beautiful tons of displays beautiful pathways extraordinaire buildings to explore. The Bronx zoo is highly focused on conservation well. Many animals to see the monorail is quite fun ride as well. Definitely a must!

went there on a sunday, spur of the moment. the parking was crowded but you couldn't tell once you got inside how crowded it was. the staff was very helpful, the exhibits were clean. there were some exhibits closed which was disappointing but there was plenty to see elsewhere. Would go back monthly.

Who would imagine this oasis would be in the middle of the Bronx. My sons 13,16 and I traveled to the zoo from south jersey in June 2013. Although the ride is not long (2 1/2 hours), I booked a hotel through hotwire in Fort Lee, New Jersey. The parking was free. In the am we awoke early and headed for the zoo. Easy, breezy. I have been to many zoo ie: San Diego, National, Philadelphia just to name a few. This is so worth every penny. We loved the Madagascar exhibit.

If you are visiting New York, you just take the subway and get to the Bronx Zoo. It is huge!!! Our kids were exhausted because of the heat, but they enjoyed every minute. The only thing that I did not like was the train ride (shuttle), they don't take you back where it starts and then you have to walk sooo much.

Went to the BRONX ZOO with my fiancé and her grand son through WADE TOURS of Schenectady.
We had to of picked the hottest day of the year. It was 102. Any way first thing he wanted to do was ride the camel. I got stuck on the hump. Oh well.
Plus the carosel and all the animals. The best part he liked was the children zoo. Where you could pet the animals.
Just bring water with you and be prepared for paying for food and or other stuff with kids. We kept him on a budget. of $50.
