If you are tired of the more famous museums in New York and want to try something a little different, check out the City Reliquary in Brooklyn. There’s a suggested donation of $5 to get you out of the storefront area, through the old subway turnstile and into the front room of the museum which is a hodgepodge of New York memorabilia. Don’t hesitate to open cabinet drawers and doors, because stuff is tucked away everywhere.
The back room currently has a display about the Santa Claus Association that operated as a charity in the early twentieth century, bringing gifts to needy children who had written letters to Santa that would have otherwise ended up in the dead letter office of the post office. More pics over at the Flickr place.
I wish it wasn’t so far away, but in spring of 2015 the New York Aquarium will debut a new shark exhibit on the inside and a beautiful new shimmering wall that will wrap around the building on the outside. It’s going to be awesome. Check it out!
