Best place to be relentlessly delighted by sea birds (2008)

PUFFINS AT THE BRONX ZOO

With only a glass box of water and a faux rock wall to work with, PUFFINS AT THE BRONX ZOO continuously foster more instant delight than their languid, showbiz relatives, the penguins, and they'll keep it up for hours. These guys even come up to the glass to say hello as soon as you arrive, whether they know you or not. And they don't need the same tired old 3:30 p.m. feeding-time show to keep the kids interested.
