Sprint through the history of magic in New York with a sampling of illusions performed by Tanya Solomon, a magician and teacher of circus arts. Try to keep track of multiplying balls in an early act performed by magicians like ‘Queen of Magic’ Adelaide Hermann at the turn-of-the-century, count how many coins Tanya pulls from the air (or from behind your ear) in a classic vaudeville trick, hear tales of other magicians leading into the modern era and learn some magic. Also check out the awesome, interactive Children’s Museum in the basement.

Also on Sunday.
