Nestled on the ground floor of the Forbes publishing headquarters in Greenwich Village, this toy trove maintains a low profile even among the most culturally savvy parents. Children can peer at the Forbes family’s personal collection of more than 500 toy boats, dating from the 1870s through the 1950s, and several thousand toy soldiers, from inch-high Aztecs battling Spanish conquistadors to jousting knights and battalions from various eras.
