    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.

    Wait for the clock to pass and don't forget the children's zoo. :)

    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

    Bird area is the best! Although watching seals being fed is really fun as well.

    tiny zoo, but plenty of cute animals to make it worth the $$. check out the grizzly bears, red pandas, snow leopards

    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)

    Small zoo with so many amazing experiences. Sea lion feeding at 11:30 was thrilling. Kids all loved the Penguins.

    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.

    Do you like Seals (not the musician) Penguins and Puffins? Good because the Central Park Zoo has them, amongst other awesome things!

    Surprisingly interactive for a zoo in the heart of New York City. Prefer it to the Bronx Zoo and it's definitely better for kids.

    It's super small as far as zoos go. You can walk through in 20 mins and see everything. Great for kids I imagine.
