Which Zoo?

Hi,

My good lady said to me the other day that she had seen the Bronx zoo on a programme and wouldn't mind going on out trip in September.

It sounded like it'd be cool to go and see, so I was just looking for information online and noticed that there is one in Queens too.

Just wondered if anyone had been to either of them and had any preference and any input about which one we should go to?

Thanks!

The zoos in Manhattan (Central Park), Queens (Flushing Meadow Park), and Brooklyn (Prospect Park) are all small features in larger parks. The Staten Island zoo is also small. The great, large, world-class zoo for New York City is the Bronx Zoo.

All the boroughs have zoos, and all have their good points, but the Bronx Zoo is the one I would choose.

no question, the Bronx zoo.If you go, have lunch or dinner at one of the great Italian restaurants on ArthurAve--its a short bus ride away, maybe 10 minutes and in a very safe area

Because the Bronx Zoo is so huge and extensive, you need to dedicate 3 hours to it, IMHO. More, if you're really into zoos and it's a nice day.

OTOH, The Prospect Park and Central Park Zoos can bee seen in under 2 hours each.

The Queens Zoo is not worth seeing. Kinda depressing.

You can combine the Bronx Zoo with the adjacent New York Botanical Garden - also a "world class" site.
