Operated by the Wildlife Conservation Society in partnership with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, the Queens Zoo represents 18 acres of wildlife with more than 70 species from different corners of America, including Andean bears, California sea lions, snowy owls, pronghorn, Trumpeter swans, Roosevelt elk, Coyotes, Canada lynx, and many others.

It's situated in the borough of the same name now though it was first opened as a part of the 1964 New York World's Fair and restarted its activity a little bit later in four years.

The place is most famous for the Fair's exhibit: zoo's aviary, an amazing creation designed by Thomas C. Howard and projected by Richard Buckminster Fuller, which attracts a lot of visitors' attention.
