Central Park Zoo
UPPER EAST SIDE. Just north of the world famous Plaza Hotel, you’ll find the Central Park Wildlife Center. This amazing complex offers a brush or two with wildlife in the heart of the Big Apple. The simulated environments range from tropical rainforests that support reptiles, exotic birds, and the occasional ape to arctic landscapes that provide playgrounds for polar bears and penguins. The zoo also has a children’s zoo and a gift shop that is great for the folks back home.
