This past summer I decided to take a trip up to the Bronx to visit the zoo. I wanted to do something a little out of my ordinary, on a day off.
There's several ways of getting to Bronx zoo, but for us the easiest way was to take the 2-train (red line) to Belham Parkway station. It took just about 45 min. from Times Square. And from the station another 5-7 minute walk - but very easy, there's plenty of signage.
The normal admission price for a "Total Experience" ticket is $33.95 for adults and $23.95 for children up to the age of 12. If you purchase the tickets online, you'll get 10% discount.
BUT - Wednesdays are free for regular admission, and "Total Experience" tickets are only $14.95 a person. I'd definitely recommend buying that, so that you don't miss out on all the attractions the park has to offer; e.g. a guided tour with rail amongst the many animals, 4-D movies, carousel and so forth.
The Zoo is HUGE and you really forget that you're in New York City. It's an amazing experience! Good for young and old.
