New York Aquarium
This aquarium has all the bases covered; shark tanks and shark feedings, dolphin and sea lion shows (for no extra charge), whales, walruses, touch tanks with skates and horse-shoe crabs, and interactive exhibits in the Discovery Cove building. The aquarium includes parking, a cafeteria and plenty of concession stands for those in need of a quick drink and snack. The beach and Coney Island are only a few yards away.
If you have been to Sea World or the Baltimore Aquarium or even better the Singapore Aquarium in Singapore, then you'd better lower your expectations while visiting this aquarium. Bear in mind that this Aquarium is the easiest option for New Yorkers due to its convenient access (not necessarily the best option). Hamstrung by the lack of space, there aren't too many exhibits and/or activities for young children to enjoy. The highlight of the aquarium is the gigantic Shark tank - the thrill of being able to see these intimidating creatures up so close is exhilarating!
If you are visiting NYC and are pressed for time, I'd suggest that there are other tourist spots that need to be checked out.
