Did you know that there is a Houdini museum here in the city?
Harry Houdini was the famous escape artist that performed around the turn of the last century. He wriggled out of handcuffs, crawled out of crates and slithered out of straitjackets. In between these feats of daring, he set out to expose fake mediums, produced and acted in films and flew airplanes. Busy guy.
The museum, located under the Fantasma Magic store on 33rd St. and 7th Ave., contains hundreds of artifacts from the life and career of probably the most famous magician of them all. Kids will go crazy over it. And it’s free!
We all need a little magic in our life, don’t we? So, check it out!
