About The City Reliquary Museum and Civic Organization
Like pigeons to a Central Park statue, the fragments of New York's history congregate at not-for-profit The City Reliquary Museum, which also acts as a civic organization that serves the five boroughs. There, past a bright red door and a canary-yellow awning, visitors find terracotta shards of landmark buildings, old-fashioned subway tokens, paint chips from the L train, and a wall of antique Statue of Liberty postcards. A shrine to Jackie Robinson celebrates a Civil Rights icon that contemporaries could have read about in an old-fashioned newsstand like the one preserved in an alcove in the next room. Other highlights of the museum include a rotating exhibition hall, a World's Fair archive, and a set of geological core samples that contain the seeds of the Big Apple. Through permanent display of New York City artifacts, rotating exhibits of community collections, and annual cultural events, The City Reliquary connects visitors to both the past and present of New York. The New York Post said the little storefront "celebrates Brooklyn’s underdog spirit with exacting curatorial detail," and the AV Club called it simply, warmly, "the city's oddest museum."
