New York City is really the most amazing city in which to live during the holidays. It's also a wonderland for winter festivities and secular celebrations.
But forget the north star, donkeys and lambs. There's a new manger scene in town and it's at Central Park Zoo's Winterfest. For the price of admission ($12 adults, $7 children), visitors can gawk at holiday light displays, snow leopards, penguins, and polar bears. After all, this is New York. The warm weather animals are in hibernation mode.
Winterfest's final day is tomorrow. Stop by between 2:00 and 6:00 PM for "live animal encounters," which sound equally suspicious and alluring!
