The little monkeys are some of the best entertainment at the Bronx Zoo.
The Bronx Zoo (website) is a Vivarium (Zoo) in New York.
Official description from Bronx Zoo:
During winter at the zoo, visit with snow leopards, polar bears, tigers, and other cold-weather creatures. Get a taste of the tropics inside Jungleworld, our giant indoor rainforest, or escape to the southern hemisphere inside Madagascar!
Dan's opinion:
One of the great escapes of NYC, this zoo feels as expansive as a walk around Central Park. However, one of its best assets - its copious amount of space - means that some animals can keep their distance from the fence.
Wikipedia excerpt:
The Bronx Zoo is located in the Bronx borough of New York City, within Bronx Park. It is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States, comprising 265 acres (107 ha) of park lands and naturalistic habitats, through which the Bronx River flows.
