Did you use a CP to cut glare off the glass, or was the viewing room completely dark?

Viewing rooms are pretty much pitch black, so no need for CPL (that and I don't have a 77 to 82mm step up yet :) )

Well, technically the animals are under water, but I was standing on nice dry ground and shooting them through 2 inch thick plexiglass :)

It probably hasn't changed since your school days. The Wildlife Conservation Society has gotten hit hard with all of the NY State budget cuts. It's pretty sad actually. What's important is that my 4 year old and 19 month old still have a blast, but it's getting pretty run down.

You still should have gone the kidney route. You have 2 so that 1 can be a spare man. NYC has how many hospitals. You could have almost gotten it done through a drive thru or something.

The Aquarium in NJ rocks. The Bronx Zoo is awesome as well, but it's getting run down as well. I keep upping my membership every year as just trying to be able to give a little something back to some place that my kids adore.

Camden. It's somewhere between hell and New Jersey, but I think the official address says Camden.
