Originally located in Castle Garden in Battery Park, Manhattan when it opened in 1896, the New York Aquarium is the most dated continually running aquarium in the United States. The aquarium was relocated to Coney Island, Brooklyn in 1957. The Wildlife Conservations Society (WCS) operates the facility.

With a total area of 14 acres, the New York Aquarium showcases more than 350 species of marine life with the goal of teaching the public about the preservation and propagation of ocean life. The Osborn Laboratories of Marine Sciences (OLMS) is dedicated for the better understanding of aquatic life through the most advanced marine research technology.

Several activities can be done in the New York Aquarium that can be enjoyed by adults and children alike. These activities include walrus, sea otter, penguin and shark feedings, sea lion exhibition shows, octopus chat and a touch pool where visitors can interact with marine creatures in an open tank.
