This 8-acre zoo is the home of Staten Island Chuck who's the official Groundhog Day forecaster for New York City. Grandpa, a Black-handed spider monkey, also lives here. He's renowned for accurately predicting the outcome of six out of nine matches during the U.S. Open Tennis Championship. This small zoo has a great reptile area, aquarium, and fox habitat. This kid-friendly place is a also friendly on the wallet - definitely one of the less expensive attractions in New York!
