Since the 1860's, animals could be found at Fifth Avenue and 64th Street in Central Park. Growing from a collection of donated animals - 72 "white swans" and a black bear cub, the Zoo today is host to over 1,400 animals of 130-plus species. From a steamy rain forest to an icy Antarctic penguin habitat, the zoo leads visitors through tropic, temperate and polar regions to encounter fascinating animals - as diverse as tiny leafcutter ants to the ever popular polar bears. The Tisch Children's Zoo allows animal lovers to meet gentle creatures up close. Year-round education classes and innovative public programs - including the zoo's "Wildlife Theater" -- encourage all ages to learn more about the natural world.

A must see for anyone traveling with children!
