The weather did not stop people from heading over to the New York Aquarium.

The playful sea lions and penguins are welcoming visitors back for the first times since aquarium on Coney Island was damaged.

You will also see walruses, harbor seals and other mammals.

Half of the aquarium remains closed for repairs until 2016.
