8. World of Birds at the Bronx Zoo
Tucked into a wooded area on the ground of the Bronx Zoo is the zoo’s tropical bird enclosure called the World of Birds. The building has few windows so that it can create a believable artificial environment for the different tropical birds and monkeys inside.
Beautiful colorful cranes, toucans, and birds of paradise are free to fly around several walk-through aviaries that mimic a tropical jungle environment within the building. Similar to Asphalt Green, the World of Birds building at The Bronx Zoo hides a vibrant interior within a bleak exterior.
