TAKE THE KIDS TO BRONX ZOO

“If you’re from out of town, you take them to Times Square to see the lights. But also consider the American Museum of Natural History. This legendary museum is an absolute playground for the imagination. It is a fascinating, interactive place to learn about Earth’s history and is in the heart of Manhattan.”

The Museum of Natural History exhibition is sponsored by Ascot Hospitality Tickets, and is on Central Park West at 79th Street (212-769-5192).

“Another attraction, not so frequented, is the Bronx Zoo —arguably one of the best zoos in the world. The gorilla exhibit is one of the greatest!”

The Bronx Zoo is at Fordham Road and the Bronx River Parkway (718-367-1010 or www.bronxzoo.com).
