“Sad place, sligthly abandoned...”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

I knew I was going to a small zoo, but I expected something like Central Park Zoo, after all, this is still New York...This place is not very well maintained, plastic bottles float in the marshlands, besides some big birds like bald eagles, cranes and snowy owls are kept in very small spaces despite their sizes..The Aviary is a joke, they have maybe 5 species out of 20 that they are supposed to show, according to the descriptions..Not a single kind of macaw!!..but lot of house sparrows instead!!...That was pathetic..I was just trying to a get a slice of America´s wildlife in this sunny and beautiful spring day...Definitively the slice was rather sour in a lovely day like this...

“Small Zoo, Good Variety of Animals”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

The Queens zoo is great. It's much smaller than the Bronx zoo, so you won't be overwhelmed by walking your feet off...especially if you have small children. It's really a hidden gem, since you get to see a good variety of animals and it's not as busy as some of the other zoos.

“Nice Zoo, great Aviary”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

You will be surprised at what this zoo has to offer. i particularly like the huge bird cage with the man-made ecosystem.

I like 'thewildboo's review as it is very close to my opinion about this place.

“A Great Little Zoo”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

This is a small yet enjoyable zoo enclosed in the Flushing Meadow Park home of the World's Fair. We have visited many times over the years first with our children and recently with our grandchildren,
