The New York Aquarium is home for marine life and a center for aquatic science and conservation research. It’s part of the (WCS) Wildlife Conservation Society (which is also responsible for our Bronx Zoo, Central Park and Queens Wildlife Centers). Over 350 species of aquatic wildlife and over 8,000 specimens reside at the NY Aquarium which sits on 14 acres by the sea in Coney Island. It’s the oldest continually operating aquarium in the United States. On December 10th, 1896, it opened its doors for the first time in lower Manhattan in what is now known as Battery Park. After moving from that location it temporarily resided at our Bronx Zoo until the new aquarium was built in 1957 at its present location in Coney Island Brooklyn. The Aquarium is a treat for the whole family. You’ll find yourself captivated and mesmerized by the ManRays swimming and soaring within their tanks; the sharks are so huge and close up that you’ll thank the heavens for the shield which keeps you apart; the Walruses are truly curious as they’ll come right up to the glass and check you out; ‘& of course there are all the other sea creatures which will keep your young ones’ eyes glued to the waters before them. So if you’re in the area then definitely pay the NY Aquarium a visit! For additional information: 718-265-FISH Visit their site for additional information and lot’s of great photos
