NY Aquarium – Day trip to Brooklyn

by Kerri on December 29, 2011

NY Aquarium is located in Brooklyn, NY.  Although one of the five boroughs, Brooklyn can be a long jaunt depending on traffic over the bridge and construction on various parkways.  Luckily, that was not the case today.

stuff to do in NYC

After recently renewing my Wildlife Conservation Society membership, I decided that I should enjoy all aspects of it including all the locations besides the Bronx Zoo.

I have to say that I was very impressed.  Although cold and chilly, we enjoyed smaller crowds and helpful staff and docents.  We even saw a Sea Lion show! ( I do enjoy taking the girls to places off season.  Less crowds and more time to explore.)

Less crowds - more time to observe.

We loved this "punk rocker" fish!

After learning all about the seashore in second grade last year, my oldest really enjoyed the visit.

We found Nemo!

Everyone loves seahorses.


Real live Happy Feet!

A great way to end the day with a Sea Lion show.

We have a membership too. We asked for it for the holidays. I agree, off peak is best. Glad you had a good time. Love the sea lion show, so impressive!
