Presenting the most magical tales in all of New York City history! Tom Meyers and Greg Young of the Bowery Boys Podcast conjure up stories of historical wizardry and superstition, from the dusty backrooms of old magic shops to the impossible feats of illusion and incantation from the Gilded Age’s most mysterious parlors. You may even see them perform a bit of sleight-of-hand themselves! Book signing after the program.
