3 Fantasma Magic Shop
At 421 7th Ave., Fantasma Magic Shop is one of New York City’s premier magic shops. It is home to a plethora of books and DVD’s on different tricks, trick coins, cards, and anything that the aspiring, or professional, magician needs. Demonstrations and lessons are given daily to bring patrons closer to the magic, and it’s not completely taboo to see many of the city’s most famous magicians shopping and spending time at Fantasma, like New York City’s own David Blaine, who frequents the shop.
What is truly unique about Fantasma is that located within the store is an entire museum dedicated to the most famous magician, and escapist, of all time, Harry Houdini.
