Visit to the New York Aquarium

Franci 13 Jul 2010 Being tourists Kids

We visited the New York Aquarium in Coney Island recently. From where we were at our old place in Brooklyn, it’s about an hour on the subway to get there.

There’s a great board walk with lots of shops selling food and trinkets.

You walk past the amusement park to get to the aquarium. There’s a great beach there which we’ll have to visit sometime.

Marica at the entrance.

And some photos of her thoroughly enjoying everything. Esther took everything in with big eyes too, but it was too dark to get a good photo of her.

We saw Nemo’s cousin!

Such pretty fish. God sure is a master of colour.

There was also an area where kids could touch some creatures. Marica enjoyed this!

Thanks, Kristen! I feel honoured to have you visit my blog. :-) Fresh Direct looks great — I’ll have to give them a go.

LOVE aquariums! I was disappointed by the ny aquarium, it was pretty dirty. Your pictures make it look like maybe they’ve cleaned it up a bit?
