Times Square might be a little whitewashed these days, but you can get a taste of the old freak show at this repository of the eerie and uncanny. Items on display include a six-legged cow, a 3,000-pound meteorite and the largest collection of shrunken heads in the civilized world. The space's room of baseball artifacts includes such gems as a lock of Ted Williams’s hair and a bat from Joe DiMaggio’s 56 game hitting streak.
