I wouldn't say the aquarium is worth visting by itself. But as a part of an afternoon out in the area, then it's a good place to spend a while.I went to Brighton Beach for a visit, ...

As a WCS member I've been here many times because of convenience: Unacceptable. Expensive. Exhibits poorly presented & not well maintained. No indoor arena. Baltimore, Camden, Norwalk...

New York Aquarium - expert review
More than 10,000 creatures of the sea make New York City's only aquarium their home. It's an attractive layout in which tropical fish, sea horses, and jellyfish luxuriate in large tanks; otters, walruses, penguins, and seals lounge on a replicated Pacific coast; and a 90,000-gallon tank is home to s...

My sister and I went to the aquarium on July 4th, so needless to say it was packed. We had planned on spending more time at Coney Island but there were too many people to truly enjoy it. My recommendation would be to visit during the week when its likely to be less crowded. The aquarium starts you o...

At $12 for an adult, this attraction was one of the cheapest available during our stay in New York, and one of the best value. The variety of fishes and sea-life was amazing. The location...

The New York Aquarium is located at Coney Island, and we spent an hour or so there in September. We had visited Coney Island, but although very warm, it had started to rain, so we went to the aquarium to pass the time. Upon entering you are faced with a corridor of viewing windows looking onto diffe...

New York Aquarium | Museum/Attraction Review | New York City | Frommers.com - expert review
Because of the long subway ride (about an hour from Midtown Manhattan) and its proximity to Coney Island, its best to combine the two attractions, preferably in the summer. This surprisingly good aquarium is home to hundreds of sea creatures. Takin...

New York Aquarium - user review
You will be shocked at how great this aquarium is. People live here for years and don't even know that NYC has an aquarium--let alone one as large as this. Maybe if it was still down at the Battery (where it was for years, before moving out to Coney) they would. The attractions are top-notch; some o...

DOE funding of $200,000 was provided through an $800,000 grant awarded to NYPA in the late 1990s to install four fuel cells in the New York me...
