Do you often go for a walk across the Central Park’s green spaces? Try the Zoo of Central Park !
Right close to the entrance area on the 5th Avenue, there is a wonderful zoo that is worth to visit. It’s just about 2 minutes walk through Central Park and you will be there. Usually, I am not that much enthusiastic about the idea of closing animals in cage… this meant I don’t really like the Zoo. However, I changed my mind with this one.
The place is wonderfully well maintained and contrary to the other Zoo that I have ever visited, the animals don’t look so bad.
You will watch by yourself. Arriving into the Zoo, you will be welcomed by the sea lions making a spectacle of themselves. They look almost happy to see people… really weird… I have never seen that before.
Due to the severe winter in New York, the Zoo owns animals mostly adapted to cold weather such as Pingouins, Snow Panthers, Red panda…
Nevertheless, there is also a tropical hothouse with many kinds of reptiles : snakes, venomous frogs, bats, piranha… Also, you will enjoy to walk through the exotic birds completely free around you ( if you not scared ! )
I would have liked taking more pictures but I couldn’t without battery on my phone…
If you go there, I hope you will enjoy it like I did ! It is only 12 $ for an adult.
Enjoy it !
