Happy Shark Week! Forget watching sharks on TV—come meet real ones at the New York Aquarium. Reef sharks, nurse sharks, and sand tiger sharks swim with stingrays and sea turtles in a floor-to-ceiling tank that lets you get close enough to count teeth. You can also watch daily feedings and explore exhibits on everything from how sharks swim, to what their skin, teeth, and bones feel like, to their life cycles and habitats.
Learn about sharks and other marine life at the New York Aquarium in Coney Island! Fridays are pay-what-you-wish after 3pm.
Open Monday to Friday: 10am - 6pm
Weekends and holidays: 10am - 7pm
