We took our grandson here and while the zoo itself is small it had some really great exhibits. The experience could be greatly enhanced if the zoo would have staff do talks and education periodically throughout the day.

We brought our grandkids to NYC for their first visit. This was a great day. Starting with the ferry ride. The enclosures are nice and the nice mix of animals is engaging. Lots of shaded areas. And a great play/picnic area.

Great little zoo near our home, good for small children to spend few hours outdoors and feed cute farm animals.

Very nice zoo with many exhibits/animals. Good place to take the little ones, as entire visit can be done in less than two hours. Worth the stop.

Nice for little kids and a nice local activity. Petting zoo is what kids like. My kids used to love the pony rides. They have some nice events but they get crowded at those times and so you have to go early.

With time to kill in Staten Island we decided to check out the zoo. We did not have much time before it closed but decided to try it anyway. 2 hours is plenty of time. The zoo was clean, had lots of shade, and there...More

A lot bigger then expected for the price and looks small when you first go in. We were visiting NYC and choose to get ferry over for a visit. Cheep taxi from ferry port and zoo was included in out new york pass.

Take bus number 51 from the Staten Island ferry terminal. This bus meets every ferry. Look for the ramp at the ferry terminal that leads to bus 51. The beach runs for about three miles with many bus stops along the way. The... More
