best way to find out what lurks in the hudson river (2008)


Most people think that Coney Island or the Bronx Zoo have the city's only aquariums, but the RIVER PROJECT collects scaled species from the local waterways for display. This year-round nonprofit venture employs a staff of high school interns, tests water quality, and features movies, crab fests, and interactive dialogues with river divers. And how else are you going to see aquatic city dwellers like toadfish, Japanese crabs, three- foot-long black fish, eels, and seahorses without diving in yourself?
