For young and old alike, the best place to visit in Bronx, New York is the Bronx Zoo. Spacious, lots of tree cover, well-kept, and clean, there are no nasty old-style animal enclosures. If you visit with kids, you may need a day to see everything. In between exhibits are lots of gorgeous landscaping and the diversity of animals is unlike anything I have seen at other zoos.
The ape section is a highlight with it’s walk-through tunnel allowing a close and safe interaction between visitors and the animals.
The animals are outside in their own habitat.
Bronx Zoo is like walking through a portal, you forget that you are still in the Bronx.
Well-designed and is highly immersive.
