First time in NYC, in Central Park, so of course a trip to the zoo was a must. When I paid I didn't think it was too bad of a price, but then when we walked around and saw how small it was, I felt the entry price was a little steep. If ever in NYC again, I wouldn't return. Also, the children's zoo was silly. You couldn't pet any of the animals in the zoo. It was a few goats, a cow, and a few other things. I'd skip the children's zoo if you go.
