It's All Happening At The Zoo

I was born in the Bronx and spent the first five years of my childhood living in an apartment above my paternal grandparents less than two miles from the Bronx Zoo.  My family still lives there.

The Bronx Zoo "is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States and among the largest in the world. On average, the zoo has 2.15 million visitors each year, and it comprises 265 acres of parklands and naturalistic habitats, through which the Bronx River flows.  It is world-renowned for its large and diverse animal collection and award-winning exhibitions.  The zoo is part of an integrated system of four zoos and one aquarium managed by the Wildlife Conservation Society, and it is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums."

This was a great place to have my first childhood zoo experience.  It's probably time for another visit.
