Why locals recommend it
Yes, there’s great wildlife in New York City! I really recommend the Congo Gorilla Forest, the Monorail, and the excellent bird collection. My son and I never miss the camel ride. If it’s crowded on the day you’re there, head over to the exhibit side of the park, which tends to be less congested. The zoo is easily accessible by the #2 train. Try to ride in the front car—once the subway heads above ground on its way to the Bronx, you can stand at the doorway at the front for a terrific view down the tracks and of the passing neighborhoods.

“Yankee Stadium is the best place to go to get a vibe on the New York spirit. Take some friends, grab a drink, and enjoy America's pastime with the iconic New York Yankees. Only go for a ballgame. No need for expensive seats if you just want to go for the experience. It's easy to walk around the concourses of the stadium. If you're looking for a good view of the action, you may wish to spend a little more for better seats. Insider Tip: Long lines start to form outside the gates before the games, so plan for this. There are also a bunch of other entrance gates around the stadium if you walk around the side of the stadium. Most people will try to enter right near the subway entrances, which contributes to longer lines at those gates.”
