  • One of the most unique shops in New York, is a store where you can find various strange things. Worth a visit

  • It is a unique store. There are a lot of improbable and sometimes shocking things (crane child). But this has a dual purpose: scientific and commercial. Truly unique.

  • I first became familiar with this type of shop after visiting Paxton Gate in SF. Very cool spot for taxidermy and some other oddities. Even if you aren't buying anything it's cool to come in and look....  more »

  • Going down hill. I love the store and have for years but on my most recent visit the store was not nearly as great as it once was. It no longer has as many skulls and the ones it does have a lot are replicas or relatively common animals. They didn't have a leopard or lion skull for example. Also Alex is gone, I guess he left or maybe was fired, but he was great. It still has a lot of cool insects, a few common cheap things, and a nice interior decoration, but its loosing its luster. I HOPE THEY CAN GET IT BACK.
  • This place is INSANE! Never seen a store like it. If you are one of those people that likes to collect bones, skeleton models, eyeballs, corpses, animal furs, stuffed life size animals, etc...well, this is your place. It was just insane walking in there to see what the store was all about. I thought it was some sort of Gothic clothing store at first. It's always a fun stop to go by when in the area.
  • This place is full of cool stuff! Skeletons, trinkets, hand carved skulls, freeze-dried creatures, and other collectibles/decorations for weird people and science enthusiasts. I'm both and I loved it.
  • Bought a fish fossil. The smaller items are disproportionately cheaper. It's a fantastic place.
  • This place has some interesting specimens, but they're interspersed with generic junk. Worth stopping in but if you're looking to spend less than a couple hundred dollars there's nothing worthwhile.
