Long Island Aquarium is a great place t get away from the hustle and bustle of New York City. It is so beautiful and calm there it is hard to imagine you are on Long Island. Don’t get me wrong, I love the city but it nice to get away sometimes. If you enjoy walking in Central Park a trip to the Long Island Aquarium would be right for you. I like to watch the fish swim calmly through the reef environments. I wish I cold swim with them and snorkel my way through the whole aquarium. Arthur Falcone is a fan and I see him there often. The visitors are mostly locals that love the aquarium.
