One of the world’s largest metropolitan zoos, the Bronx Zoo showcases some 4,000 animals representing about 650 species. Built upon grounds once owned by Fordham University and later sold to the City of New York for a mere $1,000, the Zoo opened its doors to the public on November 8, 1899. Architects Heins & LaFarge designed the original permanent buildings (many still seen today) as a series of majestic, Beaux-Arts pavilions grouped around the large circular sea lion pool. The Bronx Zoo today combines the elegance of the turn of the century with today’s state-of-the-art exhibits and attractions. During your treasure hunt here, expect to visit the wilds of Madagascar; encounter a piece of water pipe from Pompeii; stand up to giant rhino statues honoring matriarch Bessie; undulate with an ungulate, and much, much more. Get your Indiana Jones on in the wild, wild Bronx Zoo.
