My husband, 8 year old son and I spent the day at the Bronx Zoo in October 2013. It was a freezing cold, cloudy day but rugged up off we headed on the train. Aside from several school excursions we practically had the zoo to ourselves. The surroundings were beautiful, I wasn't expecting the fall foliage to be so spectacular, after all we were here just to look at the animals. But we found ourselves enjoying the stroll from exhibit to exhibit just as much as we enjoyed the exhibits themselves! Our favourite exhibit: the gorillas. Some came right up to the glass. Looking into the eyes of this incredible creatures is something we'll always remember.
