  • We wandered into a wonderful way to pass an hour or so for free. Nick did some incredible magic for us, he is amazing!! They have loads of tricks you can buy too! The Houdini collection is pretty exte...  more »
  • There is a small museum which is actually a store, but which also houses a lot of Houdini's old gadgets and history. Have read that the staff has performed magic trick sometimes, but when we were there, we saw not to a member of staff. We therefore do not have to buy anything for that admission was free. It is hard to see where to go in. It is located on 33rd Street just east of the intersection with 7th Avenue, which is the address. (Near Macy's). It is a standard port, and no signs exist outside. You may register for a gatekeeper to become engaged in the elevator. A party must show proof of identification, and all are photographed. Porter joked about the difficulty in getting there. A visit here is fast, but it gets good grades because it is free. If you are interested in Houdini, it is of course a unique opportunity.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
