In Sandy's Wake, Aquarium Struggling to Stay Afloat
Thursday, November 08, 2012
The New York Aquarium on Coney Island is closed indefinitely after it was pounded by Sandy's storm surge. The boardwalk aquarium is home to 12,000 marine animals.
During the storm, water filled basements that housed tanks of fish and knocked out crucial electrical and mechanical equipment. The aquarium is now struggling to recover.
Jon Forrest Dohlin is the Vice President of the Wildlife Conservation Society and the director of the New York Aquarium. He gave WNYC an update on the aquarium's status.
