    I read this article this morning and since I have an aquarium I thought I would check out the store on the list which I wasn’t familiar with. New World Aquarium has apparently been closed for quite some time. Whoever wrote this article didn’t do their research and wasted my time as I traveled all the way into Manhattan just to show up to a boarded up store front. I thought since the article was recent I didn’t have to check on the details of the store. Do your research before publishing!
