    The Zoo

    While a zoo has existed on this spot for over a century, the Central Park Zoo in its current form has only been open since 1988. 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 - from tiny leafcutter ants to tremendous polar bears. The Tisch Children's Zoo, added in 1997, lets little animal lovers meet gentle creatures up close.

    Polar Bears, Penguins, Sea Lions and much more! It's really cheap as well only $3.50. You get chance to warm up in the Tropical area as well. It's only small but there's plenty to see. The gift shop is good and outside the zoo so you can shop without paying into the zoo.

    Central Park
    It's easy to see what a boon Central Park is when you're standing up the top of the Empire State: the 843 acre (337 hectare) rectangle of bobble-topped green bits are a welcome contrast to the concrete and traffic mosh jostling in the rest of Manhattan. When Central Park was officially opened in 1873 it was intended to be an oasis from the city's bustle. However the commotion which is New York seeps into the botanic calm in the form of joggers, skaters, musicians and tourists. Quieter areas are above 72nd St, where the crowds thin out and the well-planned landscaping becomes more apparent. There's a small zoo in the park, organized and casual sport (predominantly baseball and Frisbee) to watch or play, a swimming pool and various free performances.

    The NY Zoo is right in Central Park.

    This is a picture of a clock that has different animals that go around it every hour.

    Central Park Zoo. It is a very small Zoo, but it's great because it is in Central Park and it is in NEW YORK.
