April 20, 1960: A boy observed a tired tiger in the Central Park Zoo. That summer, former Gov. Herbert H. Lehman of New York gave the city $500,000 to build an adjacent zoo for kids, full of “peaceful animals that children are fond of: rabbits, ducks, geese, doves, lambs, calves, pigs, baby deer, llamas, goats and perhaps even a talking crow.” Unlike the normal, “adult” zoo, stands would sell food for the animals so that the children could “hand-feed and pet the tame creatures.” Photo: Sam Falk/The New York Times
