You Can't Spell "City Reliquary" Without "Quirky" (Almost)
This is definitely an "only in Brooklyn" institution—something this off-the-wall just couldn't keep up with Manhattan rents anymore. Frankly, it's amazing that it can still exist in its current Williamsburg location. It's kind of amazing that anything that's not backed by a private equity firm can still exist in Williamsburg anymore. So check it out while you can! Contained within its walls are everything from a revealing history of burlesque (oy, sorry about that pun) to a subway turnstile from the 1950s. It's the perfect place to indulge in all the ephemera that makes New York what it is—unique, strange, and full of surprises.
