description/

Time Out NY The South Street Seaport Museum's re-creation of an 1870s-style print shop holds the title of NYC's most venerable letterpress outpost. But it's more than just a relic: The 19th-century platen presses--hand-set using antique type and powered by a treadle--offer an old-fashioned alternative to Word's latest font selection. What's more, you can watch the quaint machine imprint your calling cards using classic Crane & Co. stationery (from $150).
