Envision a Bluer New York
Roller-coasters, mermaids, hot dogs galore. The 11 million people who come to Coney Island each year know these local treasures well. But just off the Boardwalk, there are other, less familiar ones. Sea turtles, sharks, and harbor seals. Deep-sea canyons and soaring seamounts. As the New York Aquarium begins a new chapter in its history, we are bringing New Yorkers up-close to the ocean wonders in our own backyard, connecting both sides of the Boardwalk like never before.
