This is my favorite zoo. The main reason is because it is in the middle of New York City. You stare at giraffes, rhinos, and start to feel like you are in the middle of Africa. Then you look to the left and see the fire escape of a New York apartment building. It’s just weird and cool at the same time.Princess A was unimpressed with the monkeys and preferred to stare at the fish. Maybe it’s because she is a Pisces? I don’t even think she realized that there wee monkeys in the jungle exhibit. Princess A’s favorite animal hands down was the tapir. She stared, laughed, and did a happy dance for her. The funniest part was the tapir never moved. She just slept on her belly the whole time and Princess A found this very amusing! My favorite thing about the Bronx Zoo was this “nanny caddy”. It’s a vending machine for families that contains diapers, wipes, sunscreen, formula, and teething toys just in case you forgot something at home. I wish I had thought of this! Not only is this so helpful if you forget one of the many kid items you need for just a couple of hours out but I think it is an awesome business idea.
We had so much fun at the zoo and I can’t wait to go back!
