Are you allowed to fly over the Bronx Zoo? Curious to know as a relative of mine is a flight instructor.

Sorry but you can't. That area of the Bronx is (restricted air space) not on an authorized flight path.

Flying over could also disturb the animals. It's noisy enough for us humans and most creatures at the zoo hearing is better than ours.

If you want to know where it is authorized to fly around New York City, you or your relative would need to check with LaGuardia, JFK and Newark airport.

You can just ride the Skyfari :)
I don't think you can do that with private planes. Then again I keep seeing commercial planes flying occassionally over Astor Court (maybe they are from LAG)

Wow! We got two Matt's on the forum? :o Hi Matt L. Glad to meet you too. :)

Here is the Skyfari Matt L was talking about

Wow! The Skyfari got stuck for a couple of hours yesterday. Would you still go on it on a visit to the zoo?

Yeah! I'd still go on it. It's not like it would fall off or anything. It is like the subway trains but when those trains jump the track, they can roll and cause serious injury. All the Sky Ride will do is sit there until the workers set it right.
