Collectors' Night presented by the City Reliquary


If you've walked around Williamsburg, I'm sure you have noticed the City Reliquary, at the corner of Grand and Havermayer, a window display of NYC ephemera, with audio explanations.

On February 23 at 7:30 (doors open at 7) they are hosting an event described as Collectors' Night at Union Pool, at the corner of Union and Meeker Streets under the BQE, Williamsburgh, Brooklyn. I'll quote the press release.
