The Staten Island Zoo was a bit bigger than I thought it was going to be based on reviewers saying how small it is. We spent over 2 hours and I thought their animal collection was very good and various. The admission was more than...More
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.
I came to the zoo on a visit from the UK. I had to go solo as my friend I was visiting needed to go back to work. I was really surprised at how many wonderful animals they had. The animals seem well cared for...More

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 restaurants and rest rooms are close to the start of the route along the beach front. Further along is an excellent Fishing pier which juts into the harbor and and just be walked on for the smell of salt air.
The road along the beachfront is named Capadanno Blvd. for a Staten Islander who received the Medal of Honor in Vietnam.
Enjoy your trip.
