Reef Aquarium : average selection of f/sw livestock ; carries premium betta fish

Royal Aqua World : had dwarf shrimp, plants, more exotic FW livestock.

If you only had time to goto one shop int he area, i'd visit Royal Aqua as the other two don't seem to differentiate themselves from all of the common LFS in the NYC area. Near Reef Aquarium (on the same side of the street) there were a few interesting flower shops. Large pots of Pothos sold for $3 ea.
Yes, these are the same ones I mentioned in the past where one of the stores had a huge selection of nano tanks and the prices were really cheap.

Other than that, it's not worth it...livestock is not much, they actually do mostly saltwater
