The City Reliquary Museum in Williamsburg humbly began as a window display in founder Dave Herman’s Williamsburg apartment and has since grown into a small depository of New York-centric bits and bobs. Its permanent collection includes subway tokens, Statue of Liberty figurines, and a set of dentures found in Dead Horse Bay, along with other odd artifacts that tell illustrious stories about New York City. This community-conscious museum also hosts events like block parties, backyard concerts, and film screenings for all. For a look at New York’s history from off the beaten tracks, the City Reliquary Museum is certainly the best place to go.
