New York Aquarium information
This fun, kid-friendly aquarium offers an opportunity to peek at an ocean’s worth of creatures. The sea lion show is the big draw, which takes place in an outdoor Aquatheater with stadium seating. The New York Aquarium is currently undergoing a massive $157-million expansion, adding an ambitious 500,000-gallon tank entitled 'Ocean's Wonders: Sharks!' slated for completion in late 2016.
