    Why does this cost money? Really small and only good for kids. I expected it to be like the Lincoln park zoo, it is not.

    This is so tiny for a zoo. This is a New York City sized zoo. The staff is friendly. I hope they are giving the animals enough space.

    If you have kids, buy the family membership. It'll pay for itself pretty quickly

    Beautiful but small zoo. $12 admission is less than a cocktail in NYC. The sea lion feeding show is excellent!

    When the parrots are loose, you can actually touch/feed them (you're not supposed to)

    Those elitist seals just love rubbing it in that they have a private pool in the middle of Central Park. Buncha jerks. Buncha really cute jerks.
