[WATCH] Check Out the Magical Wonderland of Tannen’s Magic Shop in Midtown Manhattan

Since 1925, Tannen's Magic on 34th Street in Midtown has served the magical needs of magicians, entertainers, children, and adults all cross the tri-state area. As New York City's oldest magic shop, Tannen's has seen many decades of magic trends, and in this short video from our friends at Atlas Obscura, learn about how some things change in the world of magic, and some stay the same.

Magic is real, and no one can tell us otherwise. We visited Tannen’s Magic Shop, New York City’s oldest magic store, and sat down with magician Noah Levine to ask him all our burning questions like: Why have wands fallen out of fashion? What’s the commonality between clowns, comedians, and magicians? What’s the scariest thing for a magician? How often do you get to wear a cape? Welcome to the mind of a magician in this episode of Infrequently Asked Questions.
