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.

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.

Love this little zoo! The Staten island zoo is a neat little place with a lot of fun exhibits. Some rotate, which makes it more fun. Never a bad time.

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
