New York City's Hidden Museum of Found Objects

New York City’s "Museum" boasts an assemblage of assorted collections from around the world. Hidden inside an abandoned freight elevator located in Cortland Alley, on the edge of Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood, this quirky venue showcases obscure objects that have been collected over the past 10 years. The eclectic collection features ordinary objects including toothepaste tubes, New York City tip jars, found credit cards and various ephemera. Alex Kalman, one of museum’s three founders says, “Life exists around us, and the proof of our existence is both beautiful and absurd. Our footprint, which is often overlooked, dismissed, or ignored, is intriguing, and always worth exploring."
