The Author At Age 8
Joan Scheier remembers going to the zoo from the age of 8 with her older brother. She is now a wildlife guide at the zoo. Living in Manhattan she walked across the park through the zoo everyday while attending Hunter College. During the 1960's she went to the zoo with her two sons Allen and Jerry. Her favorite animals then and now are the sea lions. Today she greets guests and give chats and tours. Her grandson, Zachary, refers to the Central Park Zoo as "Grandma's Zoo."
