NEW YORK (AP) — Playful sea lions and trusty penguins are welcoming visitors back to the New York Aquarium for the first time since the Coney Island marine haven was damaged by Superstorm Sandy.
The Wildlife Conservation Society's shorefront aquarium will partially reopen on Saturday.
Visitors will be able to peer down into pools containing walruses, harbor seals and other mammals. Sea lions will perform in the renovated aquatheater.
And there are large tanks containing fish and other sea life, native to everywhere from Africa to Belize.
The back half of the aquarium remains closed for repairs until 2016.
The jellyfish and sea horse collections are among exhibits still off-limits.
The late October superstorm's surge flooded tanks with debris-filled water and knocked out backup power to all of the exhibits.
