Yesterday afternoon I took advantage of one of many of the New York’s pay-what-you-wish specials for the city’s parks and museums and visited the New York Aquarium.
I enjoyed my visit quite a bit, seeing all sorts of colorful fish and even some penguins and a very tired walrus (pictured). I was far from the only one to take of the PWYW deal (the recommended amount is $5 from 3-6pm on Friday afternoons), as the park was packed to the gills… see what I did there?
Lame jokes aside, the aquarium provided a light-hearted, fun experience that is a little alternative when considering its categorical distance from the rest of New York’s sights to see. Take the unique experience and combine it with the cheap price, and the aquarium is a winner when it comes to activities to check off of the list during a summer in New York.
