Central Park Zoo


Fish-sicles aren’t on the top of most wish lists. Unless you’re shopping for the polar bears at the Central Park Zoo. Presents for the Animals is an event that delivers yummy gifts to zoo residents, and for $8.00 admission, you can attend the wild party. See snow monkeys un-decorate edible trees and polar bears gnaw open packages filled with peanut butter. Check the website for feeding times, and keep your fingers out of the cage.
