What a gorgeous zoo. The animal enclosures are done so well and the animals look like they have space and appropriate enrichment activities.

Probably the best zoo in all of New York City. You will always have a great time here. Parking is a bit expensive, but its worth it! It helps you discover different animals and it is calm and enjoyable. It is a fun experience when you are bored. The shop is great here. Good prices. There is many seating areas and transit. Overall, I would give this a fresh 10/10. Recommend it.
The Bronx Zoo was awesome. The staff members were friendly and very knowledgeable about everything. There's lots of animals to see and the sea lions were really fun to watch. The Dancing Crane restaurant serves really good family friendly food(like pizza, chicken strips, hamburgers and other food that's good for picky little eaters). Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes since you'll be walking around for hours. I highly recommend this zoo to everyone living in NYC or if you're only here for a visit.
