Description

Initially located at Castle Clinton in Lower Manhattan (1896), the USA's first public aquarium is home to seals, penguins, jellyfish and octopuses, but also ferocious piranhas, clown fish and other marine wildlife, all of which is surrounded by living coral and tiny fish. The 4-D Theater presents films in 3D enhanced with multi-sensory effects.
