N.Y. - Damaged NY Aquarium Plans Partial Spring Reopening
Badly damaged during Hurricane Sandy, the New York Aquarium in Coney Island announced Tuesday it is set to reopen its doors.
The Wildlife Conservation Society says the facility will partially reopen by the end of spring.
More repair work is still needed, and it's not known how long it will take to fully reopen.
Aquarium officials estimate the total reconstruction will cost about $65 million.
There are also plans for an expansion, including the addition of a shark exhibit.
Floodwaters damaged every building in the 14-acre park, and caused significant damage to its electrical systems.
