"Sunset Zoo" Manhattan Things to Do Tip by foxglove23

Manhattan Things to Do: 19 reviews and 32 photos

My favorite place in Manhattan! I'm personally a docent there. Sunset Zoo is a relatively small zoo, and hidden in a residential area. But they have a nice variety of animals, quality exhibits, and a great docent staff that offers education to visitors. You can see chimps, siberian tigers, cheetahs, sloth bears, caiman, bats....all the great zoo attractions. The entire zoo can be explored in 2 to 3 hours.
