FREE Admission to the Bronx Zoo

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Tomorrow is Earth Day. If you wanna get one with nature, there are trees you can hug in Central Park, Prospect Park, smaller neighborhood parks, or just on the street. Though it’s a little difficult to wrap your arms around the saplings that line most NYC blocks. If you’d rather celebrate by staring at animal and wishing you could hug them, make a trek up to The Bronx today.

Every Wednesday, admission to The Bronx Zoo is FREE. Sure, the Central Park and Prospect Park Zoos are pretty awesome, but the Bronx Zoo is giant. It’s the zoo in the city that has animals like lions and tigers that would eat you given a chance, large grazing mammals like buffalo and zebras, absurd creatures like okapis, polar bears, butterflies in a garden, herds of deer and more birds than you could ever see in one visit.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
