It’s easy to miss the zoo among the 843-acre park that surrounds it, but to do so would be to pass up sightings of sea lions, snow leopards, exotic birds and a wealth of other species not typically associated with the five boroughs. Check the zoo’s website for a list of exhibitions, current attractions and activities, and don’t miss a walk through the Tisch Children’s Zoo—a compact nature trail with a playground, a feeding station and a duck blind for the secret observation of pond animals.
