Slowly but surely, New York is picking itself up and dusting itself off after Sandy. Because screw you, ya jerk hurricane. Fairway will be back by the end of the week, and now in just as awesome news, the New York Aquarium will re-open in the spring. Just in time to herald summer! (more…)
While Sandy damaged but didn’t sweep away the Brooklyn Bridge Park carousel, some of Brooklyn’s living, breathing animals weren’t quite so lucky. Despite the fact that plenty of them live in water anyway, the residents of the New York Aquarium live in carefully monitored environments, ones that don’t take very well to say, the ocean and sewage runoff rushing in.

Aquatic animals are the theme for two of this weekend’s offerings (sort of). The New York Aquarium (Surf Ave. at West 8th St.) is having its weekly Donation Friday, when admission is, yes, by donation from 3 p.m. to closing. Or for some Aquatically-themed education of a very different nature (several natures, actually), try out NERD NITE, Friday night at 8:30 at Galapagos Art Space (16 Main St.), where you can take in presentations on Godzilla, Korean pop music and the harp.
