New York Gets a Museum of Illusions

A few weeks back I had the chance to tour a brand new tourist attraction that suddenly appeared in our midst: Chelsea’s Museum of Illusions. I’d been offered the chance to tour the place when it was closed so I could have the place to myself, but my schedule only permitted a visit during open hours when it was full of tourists. Words you will rarely hear from these lips: I liked it so much I didn’t mind the Madding Crowd. In fact, their delight in interacting with the place sort of enhanced the experience. My Chelsea Now piece about the new museum is here.
