NYC ‘s Bronx Zoo / Wildlife Conservation Society

Bronx Zoo


2300 Southern Boulevard, Bronx, NY 10460

bronx-zoo-39-largeWhen this park first opened in 1899, it had only 843 animals. Today, it has over 6,000. It is one of five facilities run by the Wildlife Conservation Society. It’s the largest metropolitan zoo in the nation and its number one motive has always been “The protection and care of animals, both in the wild and at the zoo, has always been a priority.” It’s list of animals goes on and on. It has an A to Z list of animals. Some of which would include: Baboons, Bats, Birds, Butterflies, Camels, Cats, Crocodiles, Ducks, Eagles, Flamingos, Giraffes, Gorillas, Monkeys, Ostriches, Otters, Penguins, Snakes, Storks, Tigers, Vultures and Zebras.

I got to go back one day for the first time in over 20 years…’What a Treat! As soon as you enter the park be sure to ask for a map. Yes, it’s free! You might need it even though there are map signs throughout the park. This Park is huge. ‘Or at least it’ll feel that way once you’ve gotten half way through it.

bronx-zoo-62-largeMy favorite part of the park was the Monkey House. Here you’ll see monkeys of sizes I never knew existed. ‘Never thought they came that small! My least favorite park feature was the World of Darkness. There I was standing & wondering what everyone was knowingly staring at. But, believe it or not, thanks to my camera, some of the pics you’ll see on this page were taken in that very place.

If you remember anything from this page, you should remember that the park is free on Wednesdays! There’s a hefty price to pay if you’re going with the entire family.

Also note that there’s: a Skyfari which travels overhead from one end of the park to the other end; the Bengali Express Monorail; Camel Rides; and a Zoo shuttle which is also a narrated tour of the park.
