Food is really good. We enjoyed the three fish antipasto. The smoked muscles and salmon were great. The smoked lox was really good too.

Great lizard exhibit and those small monkeys are a hoot. Nice small zoo on Staten Island that's also known to house Staten Island Chuck, our version of the winter predicting rodent.

The Zoo staff works very hard to keep the animals happy and healthy. I appreciate the care they take to stimulate the animals, educate the public, decorate for the holidays, and expand their park. I've loved this zoo since I was a little girl and...More

It only takes a couple of hours to walk through the entire zoo but with a small child you can double that. The exibits are well kept and there are plenty of things to see. I would definitely recommend it if you have small children.

The Staten Island Zoo is excellent for a small city zoo. the collection caters to kids and there is a petting zoo in the warm months. the reptile collection is strong.

We got in free because we have a membership at a reciprocal zoo. Without the pass it would cost $8?, not expensive. Since it's a city zoo, it has fewer animals. Some of the highlights were the kangaroos, emus, giant rabbit (I never saw one...More

Wednesday is the most crowded. That day is free. Many day centers bring their young children to the zoo. Bus loads of happy children .Beautiful.Smiles and joy. But it fills the zoo. All other days are not very crowded.
