My wife and I are amateur bird watchers, and we were overwhelmed by the number and species we observed on our first visit. The Audubon Center is a very nice facility with many displays, handouts...

Very nice facility. We scheduled a visit for our scout group ahead of time, which included a walk along a paved trail, spotting eagles and waterfowl through a scope, a raptor encounter experience and roasting smores at the fire pit. Everything was handicap accessible. Indoor and outdoor activities. The educators and volunteers were excellent.
Great lookout with scopes set up towards Ellis Island. Never been here when there wasn't some bird to be seen from this lookout. Interesting taxidermy birds inside.
