We've just come back from visiting the Central Park Zoo (NYC) and - as a dad - it's the first time I've been since I was a child. What a remarkable little zoo! And how nice to find myself going back now escorting my own child and seeing the wonder in her eyes....

Of particular note is the penguin area, which you can see pictured above. You enter a long, dark room and can see the flock of penguins in and out of the water through the glass. They swim FAST and Ursula loved it. If you click through the pictures without stopping you can get a little sense of how they swim as we took the pics fairly close together in time.

The Central Park Zoo has changed tremendously since our childhood. It was massively renovated in the 80's and is now a part of the Wildlife Conservation Society, which oversees all of New York's zoos.
