Pacific Aquarium on Delancey Street Goes Full Blue

The much-appreciated Pacific Aquarium on Delancey Street now sports a new look. And an apt one at that.

The entire storefront was recently sheathed in a thick coat of aqua-blue paint.

Pacific Aquarium is a treasure, and one of our favorite local mom-and-pop shops. In the end, bait-and-tackle is not what you’d expect to see in the nuevo-glitz Lower East Side. Especially not in a target-rich area pillaged by the forces of gentrification. Nevertheless, against the odds, this place persists on Delancey Street.
