World Elephant Day
Recently, the Bronx Zoo has been shrouded in controversy over the treatment of its elephants. But it remains the best place in New York City to see these wonderful animals up close. On World Elephant Day, you can expect activists renewing their efforts to have the pachyderms freed, but also taking comfort in the fact that the Bronx is about as far away as a New York City location can get from the spot in Coney Island where Topsy the Elephant was electrocuted to death in 1903.
