If you believe in magic, or simply think that it’s an interesting topic regardless of whether supernatural powers actually exist, New York City has plenty of events and attractions that are sure to cast a spell on you. In addition to stores like Tannen’s—NYC’s oldest magic shop—and Fantasma, there are historic sites like Harry Houdini’s grave (and, of course, Fantasma's own Houdini Museum). And this season is also full of performances, exhibitions, magic shows and other events that celebrate the power of illusion. Read on for details, and check them out before they disappear.
