have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t scares
to be found in Brooklyn. On display now at the New York Aquarium
is an exhibit of spineless creatures who still manage to make
humans nervous: jellyfish.
See these "Alien Stingers" - now that the summer crowds
are gone - in specially designed curved tanks that allow the
visitor to take a peek under the jellyfish’s bells while they
hypnotically drift from top to bottom.
The aquarium, located at Surf Avenue and West Eighth Street in
Coney Island, opens daily at 10 am. (Call for closing and feeding
times.) Admission is $11, $7 for children and seniors. For more
information, call (718) 265-FISH or visit the Web site at www.nyaquarium.com.
