Penguins from NJ aquarium visit World Trade Center

- Penguins may not fly, but a pair of penguins from an aquarium in New Jersey was flying high Thursday in the Big Apple.

Penguin pals Betty and Vern, from Jenkinson’s Aquarium in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, crossed the Hudson to visit One World Trade Center, taking the elevator to the 102 floor, and then taking in the views of the city.

Betty and Vern visited the WTC for Kids Day - part of the holiday celebrations at One World Trade Center by the One World Observatory. 

By all accounts, the pair enjoyed the view from 1,250 feet above the city. Neither provided a comment about whether they were afraid of heights.
