Tel: 212 206 5548's insider take:

The late publishing tycoon Malcolm Forbes was an idiosyncratic and highly specific collector. A generous one, too: His finds are on view without charge in this gallery in Greenwich Village. The exhibits rotate, but on any given day, visitors can see Forbes' collection of antique toy soldiers, cast-iron toy boats from the 19th century, or handmade vintage Monopoly games. Forbes was known for his lavish lifestyle, but the quaint artifacts displayed here in magnificent detail are an ode to subtlety and nuance.

Prearranged groups only on Thursdays; closed Sundays and Mondays.
