Seventeenth: Central Park Zoo

Hello everyone, this week I bring you an other episode about my trip to New York, speaking about the Central Park Zoo.

 

Version 3

 

The Zoo is situated in Central Park, New York City. Its area is 6.5 acre (0.062 km²). It is not very big but the opportunity to have a zoo in the center of NY is amazing. The zoo was opened in 1864 as a menagerie until 1934 when it was officially opened as a zoo. In 1988 was renovated, changing the cages.

 

Version 2

 

The zoo is beautiful and it was very fun going around, looking at the animals, taking picture of them like they were in the wild life knowing I was in Central Park in the middle of a city with millions of people.

 

Version 3

 

Many people might remember this zoo for the many films that took place here, like: the Madagascar film series; Mr. Popper’s Penguins; Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
