City Reliquary, repository of civic pride, presents an array of vintage postcards from the collection of enthusiast Lon Black. The correspondence all dates to the “Undivided Back Era,” the time before 1907 when the U.S. Postal Service refused to deliver postcards that had anything besides the address on one side. The resulting snapshots of New York feature notes, messages and jottings overlaying the images themselves. Opening Fri 15 6–9pm.
