A couple of Saturdays ago we bundled up and visited the Bronx Zoo. It is the biggest metropolitan zoo in the world, and we certainly didn’t see all of it in the day we were there.
We liked the African Plains display, as well as the Wild Asia Monorail that takes you around to be able to see lots of different Asian animals. We saw loads of ‘proper’ animals (as opposed to farm animals :-) ) Like…
zebras, flamingos, gorillas, giraffes, camels, okapi, lions, tigers, bears, polar bears, heaps of different deer and way, way more.
When we crossed the Bronx river in the monorail to the ‘Wild Asia’ display, we noticed some beautiful autumn colours making their appearance.
We asked someone again to take a family photo, and this time it turned out much better than the photo in Little Italy! We even have the authentic American flag in the background!
I couldn’t resist adding this photo. What a fun dad my kids have! :-)
On the way home I thought I should take some photos of just how ugly that part of The Bronx is. Boy, Brooklyn is so pretty in its own way, but especially compared to this!
Also note the toll booths. They sprinkle those around quite liberally.
We crossed the Triboro Bridge, which connects Queens, Manhattan and The Bronx.
