As the world’s largest urban zoo, we feature more than 600 species.
Spend some time at the Sea Lions exhibit. But be careful - you can easily lose track of time and spend hours there!
Watch Dora & Diego’s 4-D Adventure, a 3-D movie starring our favorite amigos on a mission to save the rainforest with cool effects like air blasts, scents and more. Powered by ParentsConnect.com
The Sopranos happened here. Tony Soprano takes Mercedes car saleswoman, Gloria Trillo, here on a date and things get a little hot in the reptile house.
On Wednesdays it's a "Suggested Donation" day which includes everything but a camel ride. So take a personal day and spend it exploring the wild wonders of the Animal Kingdom.
"Escape the bustling city & enjoy the largest metropolitan zoo in the U.S. with 600+ species. Check out the congo gorilla forest, butterfly garden, jungle world & the monkey house. Free on Wednesdays"
Find the Jungle World building in the Asia section. Very low profile entrance but it's huge and amazing. End up deep down at the Jungle Waterfall room with underwater view of huge fish
Bronx zoo = Best birth control ever
Free on Wednesdays
Make sure @BronxZoosCobra is still here.
To see the most, either start at the upper right entrance near Zoo Center / Astor Court or hustle up there first. Meander down to south entrance.
On Wednesdays, you can enjoy a nice free trip to the Bronx Zoo! It's a great place to explore the exhibitions of nature and wildlife. The bear and lion showcases make it seem like you're in the wild!
Best zoo in the city of New York!
Stop banging on the glass and screaming. You're Not only pissing of the animals.
One of the best zoos I've seen - well worth a visit. Visit on a cloudy day, and the animals will be super active. Try to see the polar bear in early afternoon.
Never come here on free Wednesdays. There are tons of shitty kids.
I love the petting zoo.
Let your child learn about animals by pretending to be one—like sitting inside a heron’s nest, trying to jump as far as a frog, popping out of a prairie-dog burrow and crawling through an otter log.
You won't believe how much rhinos go for on the black market!
This is a must place to visit in the Bronx. Support our wildlife.
Take the express bus from Manhattan...much better than the subway. Also, go on a weekday in the Spring if you can. You'll avoid the crowds.
When you see zoo volunteers/ employees, ask them questions! Heard some cute anecdotes about specific animals this way.
There hasn't been a year in the entire history of the zoo when an animal didn't escape. Most of the time it's a small bird or snake, but in 1982 it was a rare and dangerous panther.
Total experience package is definitely worth it!
Get there early if you want to see everything, you can easily spend a whole day here :)
Grab a map because the zoo is huge. Remember to bring a stroller for the little ones, or rent one at the park. Be sure to visit the sea lions; they're a noisy, fun bunch.
Membership is only 120 bucks or so, you get in free and get 6 free parking passes. Includes all exhibits, rides, etc. Definitely worth the money and a great place to go spend a couple hours!
Go watch the tigers interact with zoo keepers, very kool!

Great zoo but you have to walk through dangerous streets just to get there from subway
Beer is sold @ the Dancing Crane Cafe!
Bronx Zoo is open all day Wednesday for only a suggested donation. Give what you can, or go in for free!
Don't waste the $13. Park on the street.
Make sure to see King Kong at the Congo exhibit
Madagascar can be skipped
One of the most popular places that people like to explore in the Bronx is the Bronx Zoo! Great place to bring kids so they can explore a variety of different animal exhibitions and the wildlife!
Wednesdays although its free admission, the zoo gets extremely crowded with camps.. Recommend for any other day of the week!
Try to avoid going on Wednesdays which is the one day admission is on a donation basis. Most individuals don't donate so you get riffraff attending. In addition, school trips happen a lot on that day.
Make sure to purchase the Total Experience Ticket That Gives You General Admission & Unlimited Rides & Attractions ( Except the Camel Ride ) :)
Be sure to check out the giraffes. They're probably the closest you're allowed to get to a big animal without a fence, moat, or window in the way.
Bring quarters for the animal feed. 50 cents per handful. (They don't take bills)
Bring good walking shoes; you'll be doing A LOT of walking.
Go to Bronx Zoo and pet liger
Across from the Botanical garden and near Arthur Avenue, is the largest zoo in the US. Habitats are pretty life like and there is a tram to help you get around. Cafe is on premise if hunger strikes.
Go on Wednesday and pay only the full experience tickets! (14.95$ instead of 28$+14.94$)
Great zoo. buy tickets for all the attractions, it's well worth it
Coming here on a Wednesday is like walking in to welfare after 11am!!! Just don't do it lol!
