In the center of Manhattan is my favorite zoo. From temperate to artic zones, the zoo is designed to allow visitor to get up close to its animals and delight in their fascinating behavior. I have spent hours watching the seals and penguins prance while getting fed, the snow monkeys groom each other, the polar bears cavort, tropical birds frolic, African monkeys gallivant and various reptiles interact to just name a few of the wonderful sights. Equally inviting is the neighboring children’s zoo with a variety of farm friendly animals such as goats, alpaca, ducks and pigs that you can feed and pet. It’s great fun for kids and even more fun for me.
