City Reliquary's status as a "weird" museum was fated from the start: once a first-floor Williamsburg apartment, a button on the outside of the building prompted a recording narrating the story of the dentures, window chains and figurines visible through the front window. Three years went by, and in 2006, the oddities made their way to a storefront and grew from there. Now, curious eyes make their way to Metropolitan Avenue for this unconventional and thorough tribute to New York City. Find subway paint chips, terra-cotta building fragments and more outlandish odes to the City inside the eclectic space. Rotating exhibits and community-curated collections assure there's always something new to see.
