You can see over 4,000 animals spaced out over 265 acres at the largest metropolitan zoo in the U.S. This zoo has been existence since the early 1900's and has been recently updates with areas like Children's Zoo, Butterfly Garden, and Congo Gorilla Forest. One down side is that those areas require extra admission fees to see. The zoo is open 365 days a year.
Unlike the Central Park Zoo (see my tip) to take full advantage of your admission fee you'll be here most of the day.

Address: Southern Blvd, between Bronx Park S and E. Fordham
Directions: There is an express bus (BxM11) which can be taken from Manhattan along Madison Ave between 26th and 99th Sts.

By subway use #2 or #5 train to East Tremont Ave. At street level, walk straight ahead on Boston Road 2 blocks to the Zoo?s Asia Gate A.
