Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This outdoor institution focuses on the wildlife of the Americas. Among the new residents are three pronghorn antelope, which your family can spot mingling with the bison. Also look for the pudu (an endangered species of deer about 14 inches tall at the shoulder)—resident Josephine recently gained a companion named Hamilton—and four Jacob four-horned lambs, born in March. Kids can expect to see some hugs pass between Spangles and Cisco, the zoo's South American spectacled bear couple (you can identify them by their black fur and beige facial markings. The zoo's aviary is a geodesic dome originally designed for the 1964 World's Fair; visitors can duck in to see some feathered friends, including a bobwhite quail that moved to the borough last December. Speaking of feathers: Try not to ruffle any when you visit Winton, a trumpeter swan in the marsh area.
