    Love this zoo but don't come during the "off season" winter months because everything is closed and you won't see half of the animals. May-October is their peak season.

    I always enjoy going to the Bronx Zoo. It’s so relaxing to walk around & see 4,000 animals up close. It’s always a new & different experience. The exhibits are awesome! Can’t believe I took this pic..

    Love this zoo. It's the best zoo in all NYC!! I always look forward to our summer trips here. If you live in the area and have kids the yearly membership is def worth it!

    Massive zoo in the hood. Can spend all day there checking out exhibits. I think late afternoon may be best time to see the animals active otherwise may catch them hiding or sleeping

    Nice place! try to go there as early as possible. There are too many sections to visit. If you go there by car, find the entrance(s) with parking option.

    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!

    Make sure to download the zoo map online before you go and plan a route. It's a big zoo and you can just end up going in circles- specially if you are going with a big group of kids. Parking is $15

    It's best to go on a weekday when school in session. You get to see everything you want to see in record time. Get the Total Experience Ticket if you are planning on seeing the exhibits. Worth it.

    1) go on the monorail! Lots of animals and you get a rest and ride. 2) use the shuttle to get around and to opposite ends of the park quickly 3) Bring lunch so you save $$ and so can splurge on treats

    Amazing zoo with incredible animals. The gorilla exhibit is worth the extra ticket price. Go for the full experience over general admission.

    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!

    The cable ride is awesome & I loved the way it was designed it give the feeling that the animals are in their natural environment.

    The peacocks were my favorite, strutting around. Almost free as a bird, besides the fact they live in a zoo! Lots to see will come back hopefully the Tigers or the Lions

    Beautiful place. You can easily spend an entire day here. Go for the Total Experience ticket and don't miss the Asia Monorail (red pandas!) and Jungle World exhibit.

    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.

    Support the zoo, it's the one place where kids can learn, and families can share time. I have been coming with my family since I was little.

    Some of the exhibits here are just sad, particularly the big cats and polar bears. That said, the monorail is one of the best parts IMO. Don't be scared off by the line, it moves quickly.

    Visit World of Birds for some of the most beautiful birds in the world, including Lesser Bird of Paradise and Andean Cock-of-the-Rock.

    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.

    My favorite place to visit on the weekends. Summer gets a little crazy with families. I recommend going in the winter for a romantic, quite date

    Free admission on Wednesday but you still have to pay for parking. In winter some animals are not on display. The giraffe, rhinoceros, sea birds exhibits can be smelly.

    If you r not a kids person don't go on Wednesday (which is entrance by donation) butterfly garden us worth paying extra! 😊

    Get your tickets ahead of time to save a few bucks - Total Experience is definitely worth it. Food is just okay, but they sell beer at the Dancing Crane Cafe!!

    $20 for general admission gets you to most of the zoo. The soft serve ice cream is also one of the best I've had.

    They only had one price displayed at the entrance but since we didnt want to go on any rides (and I think some are closed in winter) we could have saved $6 each. Check the prices!

    The Bronz Zoo is a huge, world-class zoo. The habitat exhibits like the Congo Gorilla Forest offer astounding experiences and should not be missed.

    Remember where you park and become a member because you can go to many other New York sites like the botanical gardens, Central Park zoo , etc.

    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.

    You spend hours walking, taking pictures. It's beautiful. The animals are impressive. You don't feel like you are visiting a concrete jungle here. It truly is beautiful and worth the visit.

    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.

    I grew up going to this zoo and was able to bring my daughter ( who was not raised in NY). The zoo is huge so be prepared to walk and I would suggest packing a lunch.

    Winter time is zoo time. Many animals love the cold and it's a completely different experience without the crowds.

    Don’t just take a walk on the wild side, take a cue from Kraven the Hunter & make it a full-fledged stampede. The beasts you’ll see at the Bronx Zoo are downright tame compared to Kraven.

    The animals, the amazing staff and the rides (monorail and big carousel) are the reasons we love the Bronx Zoo.
