4. The City Reliquary

This homegrown museum contains mementos from everyday NYC life through the ages. The collection of tokens and trinkets range from pens and postcards to fixtures and signs removed from landmark buildings and the old L train. Open Mondays through Wednesdays by appointment and Thursdays to Sundays for walk-in, enjoy this unique collection that showcases New York City’s distinct urban culture. The Reliquary also hosts special exhibits, like the recent Donut exhibit and last summer’s exhibition on the Coney Island Velodrome.
