Near the end of Cortlandt Alley where Tribeca muddles into Chinatown and Soho, a secret museum has opened in an abandoned freight elevator shaft. Alex Kalman (son of cartoonist Maira Kalman) and brothers benny and josh safdie (nephews of architect Moshe Safdie) of red bucket films collaborated on the museum, a venture to show the mundane and the strange together in an exhibition space. via designboom.

The shoe thrown at George Bush.
The museum even has a cafe and a gift shop at the entrance.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
